Brassica oleracea Gemmifera Redarling

Brussels sprouts 

Redarling are distinctive, vivid, red-purple, one-inch  Brussels sprouts, which have a slightly sweeter flavour than most green varieties, and they are a rich source of Vitamin C and folic acid. The high-yielding plants stand up to cool nights and frost. 




Solanum lycopersicum Artemis tomato

Cherry tomato

Artemis cherry-red tomatoes are super-sweet and rich with a unique, crisp texture. Grows best in the ground in a sunny area 
with regular watering.

Lycopersicon esculentum Tempting Tomatoes Good Hearted


Good Hearted are compact cocktail tomatoes with a low mounding habit, making them ideal for growing in hanging baskets and upright containers. Heart to pear-shaped fruits a little bigger than a cherry tomato contain a blend of sweet and acidic flavours.

Capsicum annuum Fire Away 

Hot and Heavy Hot pepper

This compact snack pepper for containers and landscapes packs a powerful sweet and spicy punch. They start out green, then mature through yellow, orange and red shades, often showing all three colours on the plant at once. Compared to a jalapeno, this pepper runs a bit hotter.
