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.)

Shipping Information & Notes

CULTURAL TIP: As with many of our easy-to-grow herbs, basils can be seeded directly into your garden in early through mid-summer. They grow quickly and yield well when seeded thickly into moderately rich, moist soil in full sun.

FUSARIUM WILT TESTED - FTO SEEDS - We specialize in fusarium screened basil seed lots. 1,000 seeds from each seed lot are tested for the presence of pathogenic fusarium wilt fungus. For more information about fusarium wilt and basil, please see link below for Basil Pests and Diseases. We ship only basil seed lots where no fusarium was found in the lab test.
