Another beautiful, delicious, and garden-worthy vegetable from farmer Frank Morton's open-source breeding program. This one is from the same original genepool as "Vibrant Joy" , but selected for deep, dark purple coloration. Cool weather brings out the color, and the plants will take a lot of cool weather. One of the best winter crops, for salad and light cooking, with suggested planting dates in Sept-Oct and very early spring (Jan-Feb if under cover.) Pledged as an OSSI open-source variety.
The Open Source Seed Initiative exists so that breeders who originate new varieties can protect them from exploitation and patenting by corporations. It means that the breeder has freely given up her patent rights in order to keep the variety in the public domain forever. The OSSI pledge reads: "You have the freedom to use these OSSI-pledged seeds in any way you choose. In return, you pledge not to restrict others' use of these seeds or their derivatives, by patents or other means, and to include this pledge in any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives."
