Blueberry Plants (AVAILABILITY as of 6/9-2020)
Variety: Detailed Information: Description:
Nelson
(More than 20 still available)

as of 6/9/2020
Harvest: Late-Mid
Zone: 3-7
Fruit: Large
Height: 5-7 Feet, Stocky
Flavor: Mildly Sweet
Hardy and reliable in our area. Our experience, strange though it is, is that Nelson blueberries have a slightly distinctive hint of vanilla flavor that is only perceptible after freezing them. Nice sweet berry when eaten fresh. Good yields early, even before maturity. We freeze alot of these.
Duke
(More than 20 still available.)

as of 6/9/2020
Harvest: Early
Zone: 4-7
Fruit: Medium
Height: 4-6 Feet, Stocky
Flavor: Savory Sweet
It is said that Duke is "the most widely planted" early ripening northern variety. Here is why: it blooms late and ripens FAST, which allows it a better chance of not getting hit by late frosts.
Blue Jay
(Only 6 left.)

as of 6/9/2020
Harvest: Early-Mid
Zone: 4-7
Fruit: Medium
Height: 6-7 Feet, Compact
Flavor: Very Sweet
When fully ripe, this plant produces some of the sweetest berries we have tasted, which is why we have alot of these planted on our farm.

Northland
(Sold Out)

as of 6/9/2020

Harvest: Mid-Early
Zone: 3-7
Fruit: Medium
Height: 4-7 Feet, Compact
Flavor: Sweet
Very high yielding and hardy. We have been told up to 20lbs per bush, though we have not seen that yet as our plants are still young. Good candidate for a container too.
Patriot
(Only 11 left.)

as of 6/9/2020
Harvest: Early
Zone: 3-7
Fruit: Large
Height: 3-5 Feet, Compact
Flavor: Sweet
Another excellent container variety, large berries, good flavor.
Toro
(15 smaller plants left)

as of 6/9/2020
Harvest: Mid-Season
Zone: 4-7
Fruit: Large
Height: 4-6 Feet, Stocky
Flavor: Mildly Sweet
Very Easy to Pick, however berries need to stay on the bush awhile to get best flavor. The bush takes on a naturally beautiful shape, hardly needs much pruning as compared to others.
Spartan
(About 20 remaining)

as of 6/9/2020
Harvest: Early
Zone: 5-7
Fruit: VERY Large
Height: 4-6 Feet, Upright
Flavor: Robust & Fruity
Very Attractive, easy to pick, very flavorfull. Can be a litte more picky about soil and care, needs well drained soil with abundant organic matter.
Blue Ray
(More than 20 remaining)

as of 6/9/2020
Harvest: Mid
Zone: 3-7
Fruit: Very Large
Height: 4-6 Feet, Upright
Flavor: FRUITY
We really like these and so do our farmers market customers, a little different flavor tastes more like the "fruit punch" that you had as a child. Well worth planting in our opinion.
Berkeley
(0 remaining)

as of 6/9/2020
Harvest: Late-Mid
Zone: 4-7
Fruit: Large
Height: 4-6 Feet, Upright
Flavor: Mildly Sweet
Lighter powder blue colored fruit, vigorous and strong growing. It is said to have a long shelf life.

Early Blue
(More than 20 remaining)

as of 6/9/2020

Harvest: Very Early
Zone: 5-7
Fruit: Medium-Large
Height: 4-6 Feet, Upright
Flavor: Sweet

The earliest variety of blueberries we have. We really like these berries and plan on planting more of these for additional early fruit.
Blue Crop
(Only 6 left.)

as of 6/9/2020
Harvest: Mid
Zone: 4-7
Fruit: Large
Height: 4-6 Feet, Upright
Flavor: Sweet
Maybe the most widely planted in the US. Disease resistant, very tall bush. A favorite among many gardeners.
Blue Gold
(Not Available till 2021)
Harvest: Mid
Zone: 4-7
Fruit: Medium
Height: 3-5 Feet, Compact
Flavor: Tart & Mildly Sweet
Easily the most prolific producer of berries on our farm. Tastes more Huckleberry like than any other of our varieties.
Chandler
(Not Available till 2021)
Harvest: Mid-Late
Zone: 4-7
Fruit: Gigantic
Height: 5-6 Feet, Spreading
Flavor: Rich Flavored
One of the favorites at the farmers market. However Chandler is NOT good for U-Pick operations because people will tend to pick them before they are ripe by accident. Birds will also pick off quite a few due to long ripening time.
Jersey
(Not Available till 2021)
Harvest: Late
Zone: 4-7
Fruit: Small-Medium
Height: 6-8 Feet, Upright
Flavor: Sweet
One the old time varieties that could be one of the most widely planted. Tolerates a variety of soil types, berries are smaller but flavorfull. We really like this berry, but it does require more effort to pick it. We freeze many pints of these for winter.
Reka
(Not Available till 2021)
Harvest: Early
Zone: 4-7
Fruit: Medium-Large
Height: 4-6 Feet, Upright
Flavor: Strong
At first I didn't much care for these berries and was going to rip them out, but during the next season the berries were much better. I am glad we kept the Reka bushes now, as we make sure they are ripe before we pick them and freeze alot of them because of their good flavour.
Elliot
(Not Available till 2021)
Harvest: Very Late
Zone: 4-7
Fruit: Medium-Large
Height: 4-6 Feet, Upright
Flavor: Tangy & Sweet
Very late producer, must fully ripen to get sweetness, only recommended for warmer microclimates in our area. Elliot lets you get some berries very late in the year if you have the right site for it.

 

Note for those wishing to purchase full sized plants we only do that while they are dormant.

Vegetable Plants for Sale

We grow a variety of Tomatoes, Peppers, and others in 3-4 inch pots.

Tomatoes that are listed as (Heirloom) will produce seeds that can be planted to produce the same plant the next year. Tomatoes that do not have an (Heirloom) designation are Hybrids and will not produce viable seeds that produce the same plant. Note: Hybrids are not GMOs. We do not sell any GMO plants.
 
Early Girl Tomato
Tomato Plants We Grow
Variety: Approx. Days to Harvest Description:
Early Girl 52 Days - indeterminate Early Slicing Tomato, 4-6 oz sized fruit. High in vitamins A and C.
Beefsteak
(Heirloom)
82 Days - indeterminate One of the largest meatiest tomatoes, these plants produce many large 1 pound or larger tomatoes, a good old time variety.
Yellow Pear
(Heirloom)
70-75 Days - indeterminate Just plain cute! Clusters of pear shaped yellow fruits with mild flavour. Great for salads! Children's Favorite! The seeds we planted this season were 17 years old! We love the old time varieties!!!

Golden Jubilee
(Heirloom)

72 Days - indeterminate Oops, ran out of these seeds this year. Went out to the greenhouse in winter and found a dried out Golden Jubilee in one of the beds, planted the seeds from it and now we have a bunch! Very pretty, mild and sweet, 3 oz fruits.
Rutgers
(Heirloom)
55-60 Days - indeterminate Firm, ideal for slicing, EXCELLENT flavor. Crack and disease resistant. Hardy, prolific, and very reliable old time variety.
Mortgage Lifter
(Heirloom)
85 Days - indeterminate
Large, up to 1 lb tomatoes. We especially like these as they seem to wind themselves up their support strings in our greenhouse with virtually no help from us.
Stupice
(Heirloom)
50 Days - indeterminate From Czechoslovakia, Pronounced "stu-peach-ka," 2-2.5 inch fruits. Heavy yields borne in clusters, extremely early, great flavor, produces very well in northern climates. Rumors of only 40-45 days till harvest.
Marglobe
(Heirloom)
73 Days - determinate High Yield. Very Prolific! 8-10oz or larger fruit. One of the first disease-resistant strains that also had a good resistance to Verticillium and Fusarium wilt. The Marglobe tomato is the parent of many tomato varieties, such as Rutgers.
Oregon Spring(Heirloom)
58-65 Days - determinate
semi-indeterminate
Compact bush, no staking required, nearly seedless, tender and juicy, high yield of good flavored 4 inch fruits. This variety can be set out in very cool spring temperatures as long as they are protected from freezing.

Ace 55
(Heirloom)

80 Days - determinate
We plant more of this disease resistant variety than anything else nearly every year. In our estimation these tomatoes seem to have a thicker skin which seems to allow them to survive while touching the ground for a much longer period of time when compared to a variety like Brandywine. Its reliability could also be due to its resistance to Verticillum and Fusarium I. Abundant producer with large fruits upto 3/4 lb.
Siberian Tomato
(Heirloom)
48 Days - determinate Small to Medium red fruit, can set fruit even with low night time temperatures. Good for planting in our area, of course, as will all tomatoes, you need to be sure not let it freeze.
Better Boy 70-75 Days - indeterminate Very large fruit, up to 1.5 lbs. Disease resistance / tolerance. Seeds came pelleted so these were planted by our 4 year old as they were easier to grasp. He also transplanted these plants and waters them most every day. I do double check them.
Grape Tomato
  Small somewhat oblong fruit. Another Children's favorite.
Large Red Cherry Tomato
(Heirloom)
75 Days - indeterminate Small, sometimes nearly the size of golf ball, but usually a little smaller, great for salads. Another Children's favorite.
Roma
(Heirloom)
76 Days - determinate Compact plant, ideal for canning and sauces, firm, not too juicy. One of my favorites.
Brandywine Pink
(Heirloom)
80-90 Days - indeterminate
Old fashioned looks and Taste. This Amish tomato is ranked #1 in many taste tests. Large fruit upto 1.5 lbs. You won't be dissapointed with this tomato.
Cherokee Purple
(Heirloom)
80 Days - indeterminate 6-16oz large fruits. A Famous old time variety.
