Cranberry Shell Beans

• Mature pods are speckled with red and yellow streaks, and hold ivory coloured beans with cranberry spots.
• Cooked beans have a nutty, meaty flavour with a creamy texture.
• Provide a sunny spot and support beans with pea netting or a sturdy trellis.


Mexican Sour Gherkin/Cucamelon

• We grew these in the garden at Greenland last year and loved them. Look like mini watermelons, taste like a combo of fresh cucumber and lime.

• Fast growing, these can be planted into a pot OR the garden, and trail or climb up a trellis or obelisk .



• This classic plant is both edible and ornamental.

• Leaf stalks and midrib have a flavor similar to artichokes when boiled.

• Ornamentally, 3-4′ tall plants produce large purple, thistle-like flowers.


African Horned Melon

• Unusual fruit with spiny horns and green-yellow skin that turns a bright deep orange when mature.

• Pulp resembles lime-green Jell-O and has a sweet and sour, banana-lime flavor. Excellent juiced!

• Grows 3-5 feet tall.



• Grown for its unique stem/root that is grated into a spicy paste.

• Harvested stems should be 6” long and 2” wide.
