Many NewGarden Vegetables Have Been Developed In 1959 What's new and best for the 1959 garden? Of the new vegetable vegetable varieties developed by plant breeders around the world, 1959 brings us two outstanding new winners. They are the best of their kinds and for their purposes, new All-America All-America All-America Selections. 'Jade Cross' Brussels Sprouts, first generation hybrid from Japan, Is by far the earliest, most uniform and heaviest producing of all Brussels Sprouts. 'uardengreen' snapnean is tne new garden bean with the most desirable, flavorful, stringless and fiberless, round straight pods. Many .Improvements although although mostly slight, were not-ed not-ed not-ed in the All-America All-America All-America vegetable vegetable trials. Breeders find it difficult to improve on the best seedsmen's strains of present leading varieties. Nevertheless, considerable progress is being made in developing disease resistant resistant and weather tolerant varieties. Earlier friuting. more vigorous plants, smother, uniform uniform shaped and colorful vegetables, vegetables, thicker flesh and less waste in food preparation: there are such desirable characteristics characteristics bred into the new strains of popular varieties. Some are sufficiently distinct to become new varieties and to displace their older counterparts. 'Gardengreen' snapbean is the new All-America All-America All-America vegetable leader for 1959. It is of the 'Tendergreen' type, a previous winner and most "popular snapbean in America. However, Gardengreen is quite distinctive. The plant and foliage are different vigorous, of medium medium height, with small dark green leaves. It is resistant to mosaic and tolerant to halo blight and to root rot. Gardengreen averaged 5 to 5H Inch pods, which are round, quite traight. and hold smooth over a long period. Pod color is a bright green. It is of the most desirable stringless and fiberless type with excellent bean flavor and quality, a good snapper. The pod set is concentrated towards the center of the plant, a heavy yielder, and pods are held up off the ground. It is very thick meated and, although although intended for tender, brittle, brittle, home garden green snaps, most of the judges recommend it also for commercial uses. It is grand for home canning and freezing. 'Jade Cross' Brussels Sprouts Is the highest voted entry for seven years. It merits the coveted silver medal award.

From the ground, up and around the thick stem to the protective tip leaves, dozens of sprouts are crowded on every plant. Jade Cross, as its name sug' gests, is a first generation hybrid or cross, with the richest blue green sprouts. It is a grand con tribution to our gardeners from Japan and the first hybrid Brus sels bprouts. Growing extremely vigorous and uniform, about 22 inches tall, with finer leaves and shorter shorter petioles than comparison varieties, varieties, heavier in yield and reported reported 3 to 9 days earlier than Long Island Improved, earlier also than Catskiil. Jade Cross is wider adapted for home and commercial uses. Being a crop to mature in rool weather, seed should be started early for a spring crop, late for a fall crop to be improved improved by frost, as a winter crop in the lower south. While it produces well in summer, flavor is strong and sprouts are not so crisp and tender as in cool weather. Jade Cross is an excellent breeding accomplishment. This hardv, more refined member of the cabbage familv should become more popular than ever with this beautiful variety in the garden and on the market. Only early orders will obtain seed this first year. The coldest weather in fifty years and ten inches of heavy snow on plants in this seed crop last March broke down many plants and caused very short deliveries on seeds men s contract orders. Get a packet packet of Jade Cross this season if you can, for the finest of all Brussels Brussels Sprouts. There should be a plenty of seed for 1960. Add the 1958 winners to the garden this spring. Now in good supply, they are the best of their kind for their purposes. "Lnoctaw wax snapbean is the heaviest bearing wax or yellow podded bush snapbean of them all.

'Green Wave' mustard film-ply film-ply film-ply produces more "greens", remains much longer in the garden garden before sending up seed stalks than others. It is of the Giant Southern Curled type, with mildly pungent flavor for boiled greens. Plant the newest and best for the finest garden of all in 1959.
