NOTE: several of the varieties listed here were donated to the seed bank from seed savers in other regions. We have found many of them to grow well in the Ozarks, but some of them still need to be tested in this climate. We need feedback from growers to improve this seedbank. Please let us know your experience with any of these varieties.
