All-America Selections Introduces the First AAS Winners for the 2016 Garden Season

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: DOWNERS GROVE, IL – All-America Selections is very proud to announce another group of edible AAS Winners for home gardeners, gourmet gardeners, farm-to-table growers, market growers and anyone interested in a unique, delicious addition to their vegetable assortment.

These three Winners are the first for the 2016 Garden Season. Additional Winners will be announced this fall and winter as the 2015 trials conclude and the breeders meet specified criteria.

 

The first group of AAS Winners for 2016 includes:

Bunching Onion Warrior (Regional Winner)

Mizuna Red Kingdom F1 (National Winner)

Radish Sweet Baby F1 (Regional Winner)

 

 

 

All-America Selections has had bulb onions as award winners in the past, but Warrior is the first bunching (or green) onion. Similarly, there have been green mustard AAS Winners, but never a red Mizuna (or Japanese Mustard). Sweet Baby radish joins nine other radishes that are previous AAS Winners adding a violet colored beauty to an assortment of radishes that range from white to red.

With this announcement, these varieties become available for immediate sale to the commercial market. Brokers and growers can purchase these varieties immediately. Retailers and consumers will find these Winners for sale for the 2016 gardening season as supply gradually becomes available throughout the chain of distribution.

A complete list of trial grounds and judges can be found here.

A complete list of all AAS Winners since 1932 can be found here. Note that this list of AAS Winners can be sorted by Flowers from Seed, Flowers from Cuttings and Vegetables.
