2024 Garden Challenges Bundle
Happy New Year!
There has been a "growing" interest in new garden challenges at Mary's Heirloom Seeds. This year we have 3 different challenges in 1 awesome announcement!
GROW A GIANT TOMATO
For this challenge, we are looking for the heaviest tomato you can grow. For that, we suggest the DINNER PLATE TOMATO. This is not a required variety, just a suggestion.
GROW THE LONGEST CUCUMBER
For this challenge, we are looking for the longest cucumber you can grow from stem to tip. For this we suggest the Armenian Cucumber, the Suyo Long Cucumber or Painted Serpent Cucumber. These are not a required variety, just suggestions.
ARMENIAN CUCUMBER: can grow 30-36 inches long and is heat tolerant.
SUYO LONG CUCUMBER: can grow 16 inches long as is heat tolerant.
PAINTED SERPENT CUCUMBER: can grow 24-24 inches long.
GROW THE WIDEST SUNFLOWER
For this challenge, we are looking for the widest sunflower seed head (minus the petals). For this we suggest TITAN SUNFLOWER and MONGOLIAN GIANT SUNFLOWER. These are not a required variety, just suggestions.
