Last week, All-America Selections (AAS) announced the first six AAS Winners for the 2015 gardening season.

The July announcement introduces four Regional Winners and two National Winners, all of which are vegetables, reflecting the continued interest of consumers in edible gardens.

Regional winners are:
* Brussels Sprouts Hestia F1 (Southeast and Mountain/Southwest)
* Cucumber Parisian Gherkin F1 (Northeast and Mountain/Southwest)
* Pak Choi Bopak F1 (Northeast, Great Lakes and Mountain/Southwest)
* Pepper Sweet Sunset F1 (Southeast, Heartland and West/Northwest)

National Winners include :
* Lettuce Sandy
* Radish Roxanne F1

These six AAS Winners were trialed during the 2012 and 2013 growing seasons next to two other similar varieties that are currently on the market.

The AAS judges grew the entries and comparisons then did a side-by-side analysis of growth habit, taste, disease resistance and more to determine if these were truly better than those already available to home gardeners.

Only those vegetables with superior taste and garden performance are given the AAS stamp of approval.

With this announcement, these varieties become available for immediate sale. Brokers and growers can purchase these varieties immediately.

Consumers will find this seed for sale in the coming months as supply becomes available with catalog companies, in seed packets, from mail order companies and various websites.

AAS Winners will also be available as young plants in lawn & garden retail stores next spring, in time for the 2015 gardening season.
