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.)

Growing Information

Micro Greens

Micro greens are used like sprouts, as a garnish, gourmet salad, or sprinkled over entrées. Create your own mixes with a variety of leaf shapes, flavors, and colors.
CULTURE:
Grow in a greenhouse or protected area. Since many different species can be grown for micro greens, we suggest that you follow the germination instructions for the specific variety being grown. However, success can generally be had by following these instructions for Brassica family members: Grow in shallow trays or 20-row flats. Broadcast seed thickly on the media surface with seeds 1/4"- 1/2" apart, and cover lightly with sowing mix, vermiculite, etc. Ideally, soil temperature should be 75°F (24°C) until germination, then reduced to 60°F (16°C). Maintain air temperature around 60°F (16°C). Bottom water or mist to prevent sowing mix from splashing on the seedlings. Maintain even moisture and do not allow sowing medium to dry out. If fertilizing, incorporate fertilizer into the sowing mix before sowing, or use a bottom watering system for liquid applications to avoid residue on the leaves.
HARVEST:
Once cotyledons have fully developed or once the first true leaves begin to emerge, depending upon your market. Typically micro's range from 1/2" to 2" in height. For most items this will be 2-4 weeks after sowing, depending on the variety, growing conditions, and final product size desired. Cut with scissors or a sharp knife and minimize handling to reduce damage. Micro Greens must be washed before serving. Shelf life ranges from 5 to 10 days under proper storage conditions.
