Caesar seeds

"Agriculture and seeds" provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.

The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, to genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems, and ultimately to healthy people and communities.

Average seed life: 3 years.

Average seed life: 3 years.

65-70 days. Tall but smaller than a standard Romaine, this petite variety’s gorgeous green outer leaves and golden yellow and tender-crisp, blanched inner leaves make the perfect Caesar salad for two! Its sweet, crunchy leaves are perfect for sandwiches, too. (OP.)

Lettuce prefers cool weather. To raise transplants, start seeds 5 to 8 weeks before setting out. Transplant out as soon as the soil can be worked. Sow thinly in flats or pots using sterilized starter mix, cover lightly and water. Provide light, moderate warmth and good ventilation. Avoid crowding: thin to 2″ apart. Amend Lettuce beds with compost, organic fertilizer and/or well-rotted manure. Gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor temperatures and moderate sunlight, water well at transplanting time, shade seedlings from scorching sun and protect from heavy frosts. Keep soil moist with regular watering and feed with a liquid fertilizer as needed. For “baby” greens, broadcast seed, harvesting leaves when 3″ to 4″ high with scissors. Make successive sowings every 2 weeks for continuous harvest.

To enjoy its ephemeral sweetness and texture, make sure Lettuce grows quickly: water it frequently and fertilize weekly with fish emulsion or manure tea. Direct-seed from the spring through the late summer. For baby greens, sow thickly and harvest with scissors or raise transplants, plugging seedlings into empty spaces in your garden as they become available.

Caesar seeds

Caesar is a blocky fruited zucchini with large upright leaves that protect the tender skinned fruit from hot sun and sunburn. The fruit has medium green skin, is slightly ribbed, and the flesh is medium firm and can be used in any way you would use zucchini. It is sweet when very small but the mild but nutty flavour really comes out at around 20cm or so and before the seeds start to harden. The plant itself is a large bush but will often put out a short runner or two after the first flush of fruit. It is not as productive as commercial varieties but a couple of plants should provide enough zucchinis for most households. The leaves and stem are prickly. This variety was selected to cope with hot summers but is also quick to start and grow in the cool of spring. Disease resistance is unknown at this stage.
