Abstract

All-America Selections® (AAS) is an independent, non-profit organization established in 1932 by industry leaders to organize and oversee unbiased evaluations of new, soon to be released, flower and vegetable varieties. The goal of the AAS is to identify superior home garden varieties through a national network of trial grounds and promote the tested winners as All- America Selections®. There are currently 25 AAS vegetable trial sites across thecountry hosted by universities, seed companies, and other public institutions. The AAS requires all trial sites to have a knowledgeable judge to evaluate entrants in blind tests (seed sources are unknown to judges) on several traits including earliness, yield, taste, disease resistance, and shelf life.
