TomatoesSince tomatoes are one vegetable I'm completely smitten with, I'll start with them.
'Kings of Color' Tomato CollectionFirst up we have a great looking collection of tomatoes, the 'Kings of Color'. This collection features a set of four different tomato varieties - 'Heritage Hybrid', ' Pink Pounder', 'Orange Slice', and ' Sunny Boy'. All four indeterminate varieties produce large fruits that weigh up to one pound, and offer great-tasting tomatoes all season long.
Green Envy Hybrid TomatoThe 'Green Envy' is a strange, yet seductive-looking cherry tomato that features Emerald green fruit, and a sweet taste. These are perfect for adding to salsas or salads for a great taste and interesting presentation.
ZucchiniA new zucchini variety for 2011 that really caught my eye is the 'Limelight' Hybrid zucchini. It is an early maturing zucchini that averages eight inches log and has a creamy color and taste. This is a must-have for the zucchini lover!
CilantroFor the herb lover comes the new Cilantro 'Calypso'. 'Calypso' is hailed as the cilantro that is slowest to bolt on the market today. This broad leaf cilantro will continually supply fresh leaves all season, and is perfect for kitchen gardens, herb gardens, or containers.
BrokaliYes, you read that right - Brokali. The new Brokali 'Apollo' is a hybrid mix between Calabrese broccoli and kale. It features the delicious florets of the Calabrese broccoli with the ruffled leaves of kale to produce a delicious new broccoli where the leaves are as tasty as the florets. It is slow to bolt and performs well in cool weather.
PotatoFor 2011, Burpee introduces the 'Purple Majesty Potato'. 'Purple Majesty' features a deep, dark purple color and a sweet, buttery flavor that is sure to please. It is the perfect mid-season potato that will add unique color to potato salads, with mixed vegetables, or mashed with white potatoes. Personally, I love growing potatoes and can't wait to try these myself.
That's Not AllAs I said earlier this is but a fraction of what is now available at Burpee for 2011.
