Adopt-A-Crop End of Summer Update
Those of you Sonoran Desert dwellers know that calling this summer a challenging growing season is an understatement. Native Seeds’ low-desert grow-out site—our Tucson Conservation Center—weathered the 2nd driest monsoon season in Tucson’s history, and the cumulatively hottest monsoon season Tucson has ever seen.
The seasoning gives excellent flavor to a variety of foods I prepare.
they are just what l ordered.
More of these seeds successfully germinated and sprouted than any of the other winter garden vegetables I bought from Native Seeds; I live in USDA zone 9. Now that its been about a month, they've slowed growth, but are looking strong.
My Grandfather grew and dried Anchos for as long as I can remember. These remind me of those. Perfectly smokey and a really bright and detailed fruit vibe happening under the mild heat. SCORE!
I got my seeds.
True Greek Oregano
I haven’t planted the peas yet.
I was very pleased with my order from Native Seeds Search!!! Will likely order again soon.
I purchased three packets of glass gem corn seeds earlier this month. My order arrived quickly and completely and in good shape and the seeds themselves look ready to plant. I’m excited to include them as part of my garden pot next year. I also purchased a book on plant breeding which has been very informative as I research different tomato varieties and how to create my own.
Started buying guajillo powder after a visit to AZ years ago. Its warm flavor adds depth to just about any soup or casserole, or even a pot of steamed
vegetables. I have shared it many, many times with friends and have noticed that traditional spice companies, late to the party, have introduced their own versions. The reason to buy it here is because NS/Search is devoted to selling local seeds and plants and promoting healthy diets among native cultures, as well as research into those cultures' history. (Yes, I'm also a donor.) Long may it thrive.
Barrel Cactus Seeds
We planted the cilantro a week ago. We're starting to see some sprouts!

The plant is a good one for Tucson. However, the photo shown here is of a different Bird of Paradise. Mexican Bird has yellow blossoms, this photo is of Caesalpinia pulcherrima - Red Bird.
