Standard Wisconsin Fast Plants seed packet

Standard Variety

Standard Wisconsin Fast Plants®

Standard stock characterizes the typical form and growth patterns for Fast Plants. Standard stock was selected for uniformity under ideal growing conditions in days to flower (14 days) and short life cycle (35-45 days to harvesting seed). Also, Standard was recently bred to have a purple stigma, making it easy to observe pollination.

Wisconsin Fast Plants are non-GMO, developed through traditional plant breeding for research and teaching. Their closest vegetable relative is a turnip or Chinese cabbage. Their scientific name is Rapid Cycling Brassica rapa.
