Deliciously Unusual

Here at Byrd's, we always have the old standbys: tomatoes, squash, okra, cucumbers, etc. We have some less common varieties as well. We have the Yellow Pear heirloom tomato plant, that produces (you guessed it) yellow and pear-shaped fruit. We have two other yellow tomatoes, the Lemon Boy and the Yellow Cherry. We have Orange Tendersweet watermelon plants that make beautiful and sweet orange-fleshed melons. We have Park's Whopper tomato plants that makes huge, nearly one pound fruits, banana-shaped cantaloupe seed, spicy El Hombre peppers and much more. Come by and try something new this season.

Time to get your garden on!

Planting time is in full swing here at Byrd's! Mr. Byrd has been out in the field every day working on his famous home-grown tomatoes and sweet corn, and now the field peas are going out, too. And, of course, we have plenty of seed and plants for you home gardeners as well. We have the hard-to-find Dixie Lee and Red Ripper heirloom peas for only $3.00/lb., big, blooming tomato plants for $4.75 and much more. Come see us at 1221 North 5th St or give us a call at (843) 332-0262.
