Types of Seeds: Heirloom, Hybrid, and Open-Pollinated

To save seeds that are healthy, vigorous, and true-to-form, it’s important to understand the different seed types available in today’s market.

‘Green Giant’ is an open-pollinated potato-leaf variety first selected from an unexpected seedling by Reinhard Kraft and then popularized by gardener Craig LeHoullier after 2004. The large emerald-green fruits commonly exceed 1 pound, are known for their incredible flavor, and stay pure green even when fully ripe.
