2017 Awesome variety, did really well for me on the prairies in a non-ideal season. I started with a handful of seeds I received from Michelle on a trip to Truro, NS in 2016 and now have a good stock at the end of 2017 to really get a good harvest in 2018 so I can reshare as much as possible. Good for fresh and dried use, although do get the pods early to avoide woodiness.
