Plants prove they will perform in the garden

All-America Selections has announced a second batch of winners for the 2013 season. As a sign of the continuing trend in the home garden market, three of the four winners are from the vegetable category and the fourth is a flower. The winners are: 'Pinto Premium White to Rose' geranium, 'Jasper' cherry tomato, 'Melemon' melon and 'Harvest Moon' watermelon. 

Each of these winners was trialed next to two or three similar varieties currently on the market. AAS judges did a side-by-side analysis of characteristics including growth habit, taste and disease resistance to determine if the trial plants were truly better than those already available to home gardeners. Only entries with superior garden performance and taste are granted the honor of an AAS Award.
