AAS (All-America Selections) Winners

AAS (All-America Selections) Winners

We carry dozens of All-America Selections winners, including seven Johnny's-bred varieties -- Jasper Cherry Tomato; Baby Bear Pumpkin; Bright Lights Swiss Chard; Diva Cucumber; Sunshine Kabocha Squash; Bonbon Buttercup Squash; and Carmen Pepper. Read about Johnny's Plant Breeding Program (article by Rob Johnston Jr., Johnny's founder and chairman).

All-America Selections is an independent, nonprofit organization that trials new varieties alongside two or three similar varieties currently on the market, then introduces only the best garden performers as AAS Winners. Submitted vegetable and flower varieties are tested by a geographically divergent network of independent judges to determine whether their garden performance is truly superior, with winners chosen on the basis of scores received from judges at 34 sites in the U.S. and Canada. Johnny's is proud to be an official trial ground site for AAS. (To learn more, visit the All-America Selections website.)
