Roguelands Heirloom Vegetable Seeds

This is a delightful catalog. You will find many seeds that are virtually unobtainable elsewhere, for example a 19th century white tomato from the US. The stories about their offerings are often excellent — and many suggest something about the world at large. For example, they offer the “black” tomato named after the great American singer Paul Robeson. It is a Russian offering. Paul Robeson was blacklisted during the McCarthy era. This great baritone was popular in the Soviet Union, so this tomato’s story emodies some of the complexity of the early years of the Cold War. Roguelands is friendly to US and Canadian gardeners.
