Later Harvest - Big Beefsteaks

Big Beefsteaks

Big Beefsteak Heirlooms coming in - outside the baskets:  Brandywines, Striped German, and Orange Strawberry.  Green Zebras, too.  The dark ribbed ones are an old, old, heirloom, Purple Calabash - one of the historic varieties grown at Renfrew's Four Square Garden, and John Brown's House.  Seed originally provided by Dr. Doris Goldman.

Genetic Source for 2011 Orange Strawberry, Brandywine, Green Zebra and Striped German

Seed saving underway for 2011 planting.  Choose your best fruits, squeeze pulp and seeds into a jar and allow to ferment for 4-5 days (can get a little smelly).  Strain, rinse and dry on paper plates, being sure to label them.
