Cucumber, Cool Customer - uniform fruits average 4" long with exceptional flavor. grow a few and make enough pickles to last the year. don't forget to order a Dill plant start, too!
Cucumber, Marketmore 76 - a classic slicing cucumber, 8-9" long. perfect for summer salads.
Pepper, Habanada - all the flavor of a Habanero pepper without any of the heat! a dream come true for the Midwestern palate.
Pepper, Cayenne - this highly productive plant yields bright red fruits that are 6" long. easy to dry for home-grown chili flakes or make a fresh hot sauce.
Pepper, Serrano - Emma's personal favorite pepper for fresh eating and salsa making! flavorful with medium heat.
Pepper, Shishito - thin-walled peppers are very flavorful with mild heat. toss them on the grill until blistered, then season with lime juice and salt - a fabulous summer treat.
Rhubarb - our namesake! this is a first-year plant grown from seed and stalks should not be harvested until second year so the plant can establish. harvest lightly in year two, in year three harvests can be more substantial. a must have for every Midwestern garden.

Tomato, San Marzano - excellent paste tomato for sauces and canning. Indeterminate.
