They are the best of their kinds and for their purposes--All-America Selections. Jade Cross Brussels sprouts, a first generation hybrid ffom Japan, is by far the earliest, most uniform and heaviest producing of all Brussels sprouts. Gardengreen snapbean is the new garden bean with the most desirable, flavorful, stringless and fiberless, r o u n d and straight pods. Gardengreen snapbean is of the type of tendergreen; a previous winner and most popular By Walter Fmch snapbean in America. However, Gardengreen is quite distinctive.

Jade Cross Brussels sprouts rated highest voted entry for seven years and merits a coveted silver medal award. JADE CROSS, as its name suggests, is a first generation hybrid or cross, with the richest ot blue-green sprouts. It also comes from Japan and the first hybrid Brussels sprouts. Being a crop to mature in cool weather, seed should be started early for a spring crop, late for a fall crop to be improved by frost. While it produces well in summer, flavor is strong and sprouts are not so crisp and tender as in cool weather. Only early orders will obtain seed this first year. The coldest weather in 50 years and 10 inches of heavy snow on plants of the eastern seed crop last March broke down jnany plants and caused very short deliveries on seedsmen's contract orders. There should be a plenty of seed for 1960.
