Heirloom Beans Our Specialty 

Billy Hepler seed Company 

Durham, New Hampshire 

UR FOURTH birthday! Tur Bitty Herter Seep Company has 
more specialties; varieties especially suited to the short cool sum- 
mers of the North. Also for your convenience a list of standard 

varieties, all of which have been carefully tested in both Durham and 
West Stewartson, New Hampshire. They are chosen for both home 
garden and commercial use with special reference to quality. The spe- 
cialties are both interesting and useful. The 4-H gardens of Coos and 
Cheshire Counties, New Hampshire had bushels of tomatoes when Early 
Chatham was planted. The Littleton Horticulture and the Early Queen 

Iunc Pearson, vegetable grower from Quincy, 
New Hampshire is proud of his 
Early Chatham Tomatoes 

beans are favorites with home gardeners for early maturity, high yield, 
and baking quality. 

Almost all of our seed is New Hampshire grown. Some of the seed is 
still scarce. We are glad to share what little we do have. 

THE Bitty Herter Seep Company is the first seed company to offer 
you the following varieties of outstanding merit. The early Dixville, 
the high vitamin New Hampshire 50 and Maine’s F.N.C. Tomatoes; 
Littleton Horticulture Bean; Carnival Popcorn; Beggs Winter Keeper 
Watermelon; and the Baby Blue Squash. 

Other varieties of merit offered for the first time by Billy Hepler: 
Pennheart Tomato; Seneca Horticulture Bean; Freezonian Pea; Deli- 
cata Squash; Pennlake Lettuce; three varieties of Field Corn; Great Bay 
Strawberry; and the Durham Raspberry.

All of our tomato varieties except Marglobe, N. H. 50, and F. N. C. 
are determinate. They should not be started before April 20. Setting 
out plants with fruit or flowers delays maturity. They will grow best 
in a rich, well-manured soil with plenty of super phosphate in a warm 

DIXVILLE—Dr. Yeager has done it again. This new tomato is larger 
than Early Chatham, as early as Window Box, bright red in color. In 
the UNH Horticulture Farm tests many plants yielded 100 or more 
tomatoes which started ripening in late July. Seed is scarce this year. 
Pkt. 25 cts.; 4 oz. $1.30; Y% oz. $2.50; 1 oz. $4.90. 

TINY TIM—Introduced by the Horticulture Dept., UNH. This is a 
dwarf tomato with small fruit. It may be started in August, trans- 
planted to a five inch pot filled with rich composted soil. When 
grown in a sunny window, it will ripen fruit by Christmas. Planted 
outdoors it will bear hundreds of small, high quality tomatoes. Pkt. 
25 cts.; 44 oz. $1.25; Ye oz. $2.40; 1 oz. $4.65

a very prolific variety. The fruit is red in color, of medium size and 
contains 3-4 times as much vitamin C as ordinary tomatoes. It is 
quite mild in flavor. Pkt. 15 cts.; 4% oz. 55 cts.; 1 oz. $1.05; 14 lb. $3.15. 

NEW HAMPSHIRE 50—A UNH introduction. The latest develop- 
ment in high vitamin tomatoes. The fruit is round in shape, deep 
red in color and contains at least 50% more vitamin C than High 
C and therefore has more food value. In fact, one 5 ounce tomato 
will carry your vitamin C requirements for a day. The plant is not 
a determinate and therefore larger than the rest of our varieties. Al- 
low for more room than for Early Chatham or New Hampshire Vic- 
tor. It ripens with New Hampshire Victor. Pkt. 25 -cts.; 14 oz. 
$1.60; 44 oz. $3.00 1 oz. $5.50
