'Green Velvet' is a Wild Garden Seeds original we're excited to add to the catalogue. Here's what they say about it:

"Leaves undulant and shimmering green, like a large spinach plugged in. Pinkish stems and seed heads are evidence of the close relation to 'Triple Purple', but its look is quite opposite. Like a lot of sibs come to think of it. Vigorous type with large leaves."

This variety carries the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI) pledge, which states: “You have the freedom to use these OSSI-Pledged seeds in any way you choose. In return, you pledge not to restrict other's use of these seeds or their derivatives by patents or other means, and to include this pledge with any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives.” More information on OSSI can be found at
