All-America Selections (AAS) Winners: Pick Up the Newest Award Winning Vegetable Seeds on the Market and Grab a Piece of Garden History

All-America Selections (AAS) Winners: 
Pick Up the Newest Award Winning Vegetable Seeds on the Market 
and Grab a Piece of  Garden History


All-America Selections has been around for over 8 decades with one goal in mind. That goal is a yearly pursuit to find the best new seed varieties, from around the world, for your gardens. Only the best flowers and vegetables become AAS Winners. The 2017 winners have been selected. Be the first to grow a new trial proven variety winner in your garden.


You may not be familiar with All-America Selections but you know some of their past winners. You have probably grown some of their "Tested Nationally & Proven Locally” seed variety winners. You might even have some of them growing in your garden right now. I do.

After 85 years of holding seed trails and selecting yearly ‘AAS Winners’, they are everywhere. Why not grow the best varieties in your garden? Select winning varieties for your garden and start with seeds that have been tested and proven across North America. That is one way to have great success in your garden.





Do you love tomatoes? In 1943 a tomato by the name of ‘Jubilee’ won the coveted title of AAS Winner. Other tomatoes which have won that title are the tomato hybrids ‘Celebrity’ and ‘Juliet.’

There are so many other vegetables and flowers too, that you probably already know and grow. The peppers ‘Giant Marconi’, ‘Gypsy’ and ‘Super Cayenne’ are all past AAS Winners. If those names don’t ring a bell, how about the 1943 winner that goes by the name ‘Sweet Banana.’ The ‘Sweet Banana’ pepper is probably grown in every garden across North America. 

 

How about the 1935 AAS Winner ‘Straight 8’ cucumber? Love radishes? The ‘Cherry Belle’ was a winner in 1949. The ‘Champion’ was a winner in 1957. These are radish standards now, grown in most of our gardens. Squash winners include: 'Early Prolific Straightneck’ in 1938, ‘Black Beauty’ in 1957, ‘Fordhook Zucchini’ in 1942 and ‘Peter Pan’ in 1982.

So many of our old “tried and true” favorite garden varieties, were first introduced to us by All-America Selections. The past AAS Winners have become part of gardening history.

They have a complete database of over 800 winners and new winners are added to it yearly. Why not grow a piece of gardening history? And while you are looking over the past winners, pick up some of the newest winning 2017 varieties. Get the best varieties, from the past and present, for your garden.

You can find these award winning seeds, for your garden, by going to their website. They will link you to dozens of seed companies that sell AAS Winners. No they don’t sell them directly, they only have one goal and that is to find proven vegetable and flower varieties that will grow in your garden. Only the best varieties become AAS Winners.







Good Luck with Your Garden,
