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. Retailers and consumers will find these Winners for sale for the 2016 gardening season as supply gradually becomes available throughout the chain of distribution.
