Will ya look at these cucumbers featured in the 1905 Farmer Seed & Nursery catalog! The Giant Erfurt variety (grown for exhibition purposes) grew large enough to almost dwarf the seated child holding them! One never knows what novelties can be found inside historic seed catalogs! Farmer Seed & Nursery originated in Faribault, MN in 1888. Andersen Horticultural Library hosts a collection of vintage Farmer Seed & Nursery catalogs.
