Also known as bok choy or Chinese white cabbage. Pak choi is grown for its stalks which are used in oriental cooking. It is also delicious raw.  Pak Choi can be used in stir fry or salads to add extra flavor and texture.
Prize Choy

We have long liked Prize Choy for its elegant vase-like shape, medium thick white stems and smooth, mild flavor. Prefers cool weather, but is slow to bolt in heat.

Chainese Cabbage Rubicon (Napa)
Producing white leaves at the bottom and pale green leaves at the top, attractive napa cabbage leaves are somewhat crinkly.  The flavor is sweet, tangy, juicy and delicious!
Red Express
A crunchy and satisfying red cabbage.  Adds great color to salads and slaws, also good braised.
Marketmore 76
I am not a huge fan of green cucumbers but they're great for a cool cucumber soup or for making tsaziki.  Mareketmore 76 is Dr. Henry Munger’s classic open-pollinated cucumber for the ages, long the leading slicing variety in the Northeast.
Northern Pickling

A smaller cucumber for salads and pickling.

Another variety of green edamame.  I'm a big fan of edamame and like the variety - I especially like freezing these and having them to nibble on during the winter.

This eggplant is the heirloom cousin to the type we most often see in the grocery store. These are often good for grilling because they hold their shape as they cook better than other varieties.
Purple Long
This purple Italian variety is also referred to as a Japanese eggplant. It has similar culinary properties to the Snowy White eggplant.
Rosa Bianca
This purple tinted Italian eggplant has a delicate and creamy flavor and is considered highly in the world of gourmet cooking. Try this eggplant with an experimental stuffing!

This creamy textured eggplant is native to India. Like most of the long types, it has less of a tendency to bitterness so you should not have to worry about peeling and salting this eggplant.
Hardneck Garlic
We grow Music Pink Hardneck Garlic using certified organic seed garlic.  There is nothing better than fresh garlic.  Try this and you'll never buy supermarket garlic again.
Green Beans
Royalty Purple Podded
Bred at the University of New Hampshire by the late Professor Elwyn Meader. Introduced by the Billy Hepler Seed Company in 1957. Distinctive purple foliage and purple flowers. Stringless 5" slightly curved tender round pods that cook to green. I’ve tried other purple beans and like this one the best.

Excellent fresh market bean
Greens: Arugula

a.k.a. "rocket," is a native of Europe and western Asia. It is a cruciferous plant; whose leaves resemble those of the radish and provide tender, slightly bitter, mustard-flavored greens for salads and then some.

Arugula is full of vitamins A and C and-like many greens-provides much

Greens: Mizuna
Greens: Mizuna Mustard

Mizuna has green serrated leaves on slender white stems, the leaves are delicate enough to eat raw and have a slightly pungent mustardy, mild and tangy flavor. You will find the flavor of mizuna peppery-fresh but not overpowering. Mix mizuna with other salad greens and mesclun or add shredded mizuna leaves to soups and stir fries at the end of cooking. Use mizuna as a bed or garnish for meat and fish, grilled seafood, poultry or barbequed pork.

Parboil; add taste and texture to a variety of salads. Simply served, this vegetable offers a delicate flavor topped with butter or a favorite flavored light sauce. Serve as an accompaniment for meat and poultry dishes. This tiny vegetable is excellent blanched, refreshed and chilled.
Kohlrabi Early White Vienna
If you have never tried eating a Kohlrabi, you are in for a treat.  They have a radish-cabbage taste.  Because of their mild flavor, many kids love them. Like most brassica or cole crops, kohlrabi grow best in cool weather. The meat of this variety is very sweet and mild, creamy-white in color and tasting like a mild turnip.

Chervena Chuska Hungarian

French Fingerling
Russian Banana Fingerling

Late season

Yukon Gold
Yukon Gold has yellow-buff skin and yellow flesh. Yes, you can get these in the grocery stores and I would not have bothered to grow them again this year except that I discovered that they make the very best home made potato chip. Serve with Cranberry Red potato chips for a treat your family and friends will never stop talking about.
French Breakfast
A root vegetable related to the turnip and horseradish family, with a crisp texture and a mild to delicately sweet flavor. The French Breakfast radish has an elongated shape that can grow to approximately three inches in length, displaying a bright red outer skin, which turns white at the root base. There are two main categories of radishes, either the spring or winter radishes, based on the time when they are harvested. Spring radishes are harvested early in their growing season resulting in a smaller radish. The winter radishes are harvested later in their growth and result in a larger round or more elongated shaped vegetable. This radish is considered to be a spring radish, but may be available throughout the year. It is a radish that is generally served raw to be used as hors d'oeuvres or a complement to salads. When selecting, choose radishes that are firm, crisp, and without blemishes. Radishes grown and harvested when temperatures remain hot develop an increased bitterness. Store without the leafy tops and place in the refrigerator, wrapped in plastic to keep fresh for several days. It is also known as a Flambo radish.
Miyashige White Daikon
These long thin Japanes radishes were a market hit last year. Picked young and tender, these radishes are perfect for addint an international flair to dinner.

Summer Squash

A distinctive, slender fruit, yellow with faint white stripes and light green blossom ends.  These have an unusually delicious nutty taste and firm texture.

Black Krim

Slightly salty  

Black Prince
Originally from Siberia, this is one of the most popular and favored black tomatoes. Originally introduced from Irkutsk, Russia and is regarded as a "true Siberian tomato" that does very well in cooler climates. Until only recently this was considered a rare variety in the United States. However, its popularity has grown so much in Russia that there is now a company in Volograd that is producing an extract of the Black Prince called "Black Prince Tomato Oil." The Black Prince tomato is said to have considerable health benefits beyond the presence of lycopene. 
These deep garnet round, 2-inch (2-3 oz.) tomatoes are full of juice and incredibly rich fruity flavors.

Gourmet Yellow Stuffer
Great White

I’m still looking for a good white tomato.  So far they’ve been pretty bland but I’m trying again.  Maybe I’ll finally be satisfied with these big yellow-white fruits with mild taste.  But – if you can’t eat tomatoes because of the acidity these may be just the fruits for you!

Green Zebra

This was my introduction to the wonderful world of heirloom tomatoes.  A lively citrusy zing characterizes this jewel colored beauty.  (When the kids were younger I would make a "stop light" tomato salad, arranging red, orange, and green tomato slices to look like a stop light!)

Hungarian Heart
Nyagous Black
Paul Robeson

This famous tomato has almost a cult following among seed collectors and tomato connoisseurs. They simply cannot get enough of this variety’s amazing flavor that is so distinctive, sweet and smokey. 7-10 oz. fruit are a black-brick color. Named in honor of the famous opera singer star of ‘King Solomon's Mines’, 1937. Paul Robeson was also a Russian and Equal Rights Advocate for Blacks. This Russian heirloom was lovingly named in his honor. We are proud to offer such a wonderful variety.


OK – so I’m not a huge fan of Brandywine – I’ve found better tomatoes out there.  This is this season’s replacement for Brandywine.  Deep pink and smoother than Brandywine, Rose is every bit as large, meaty, and flavorful.

San Marzano

The ultimate in Roma-type or plum tomatoes for sauces.  These Italian heirloom tomatoes make instant paste and are a requirement for any great sauce recipe!

Slicing Tomtatoes

We grow a variety of slicing tomatoes throughout the season.  The first variety that is ready in July is called Polbig, the mid-season variety is Celebrity, and the late variety is Mountain Fresh.  Mountain Fresh can be harvested green just before the frost and ripened in the greenhouse.  Each year we also try new varieties looking for great taste and disease resistance.

Yellow Brandywine
Yellow Roma Tomato
This great looking, great tasting yellow tomato variety adds special color to any tomato dish. Grown in our hydroponic greenhouse they taste great year round.
Tomato, Cherry
Fargo Yellow Pear
Yellow Cherry Tomato, Golden Sweet
Tiny and pea-size, remarkable little yellow red currant tomatoes offer a flavor combination of sweet and tart with a delectable crisp texture.  Delicious just as they are, the convenient size of this tiny taxi cab-colored yellow tomato makes a perfect addition for salads and stir-fries. A perfect complement to Red Grape. Firm, bite-size, deep yellow fruits grow in long clusters on tall, healthy plants. The best-eating yellow grape with mild, sweet flavor.
Winter Squash
Spaghetti Squash

Introduced in 1934. Spaghetti-like strands of flesh are delicious in many dishes. Check out the recipes section for a way to use spaghetti squash as an alternative to a pasta salad.

Winter Squash: Delicata
New to Reverence this year and Shawn's all time favorite zucchini, Raven sets the standard for dark zucchini. Its smooth-skinned glossy shapely greeny-black fruits make it the likely winner in the zucchini beauty contest, but its merits go more than skin deep. Research by Dr. John Navazio showed that Raven’s dark pigmentation contains more of the antioxidant lutein, which helps preserve eyesight, than lighter-skinned varieties.
The flesh is tender, firm, and creamy white with excellent flavor. It is delicious grilled, steamed, boiled, sauteed, fried, or used in breads. Tiny baby squash can be used as appetizers or leave whole and sauteé with other vegetables. This variety also freezes well.
