This time of year is perfect for grabbing a blanket and getting cozy with your 2021 Jung Seed Catalog while dreaming of your garden plans for next season. Pantone usually announces their Color of the Year to give us some fun inspiration. This year, Pantone announced two colors for 2021! “Illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power, while Ultimate Gray is emblematic of solid and dependable elements that are everlasting and provide a firm foundation.” Get ready to celebrate Illuminating Yellow with our wide selection of yellow fruits, vegetables, annuals, perennials, and shrubs. Here are a few of our favorites to get you started.

Lemon-yellow color throughout and delicious mild flavor. Deep globe-shaped fruits average 6 to 7 ounces. Disease-resistant indeterminate fruits outyield all other yellow tomatoes.
New 2021 Tea Rose! The 4 inch, fragrant, buttery yellow blooms have a wonderful old-fashioned form that is utterly enchanting both in a vase and on the bush. Disease-resistant plants grow up to 6 feet tall and produce a nearly endless supply of blooms all summer long.
Begonia’s size and beauty make them ideal for hanging baskets. 3 bulbs in an 8-inch pot are recommended. Our strain of Begonia offers extra-large double flowers.
Our Russian quince is unique for its tender and mild-flavored fruit. High in Vitamin C and pectin, they are used for jams, jellies, baked goods, flavoring, and canning. Small, well-behaved, disease-resistant trees grow 10 to 15 feet tall.
Scentsational fragrance! This floriferous honeysuckle bears lemon- yellow, intensely fragrant flowers beginning mid-spring and continuing all summer. The flowers are followed by bright red berries.
New 2021 Summer Squash! Nearly spineless plants have an upright, open bush habit, producing fruits in abundance along the central stem. The yellow, straight neck fruits have good neck girth and are best when picked at 6 inches.
Melt-in-your-mouth patty pan-type butter-yellow scalloped fruits. Maintains its delicious buttery, nutty flavor whether picked tiny or at 2 to 5 inches teacup size.
This is the most floriferous dwarf sunflower to date, bearing up to 20 flowers on plants only 20 inches tall. The flowers are produced in up to 3 waves of 5 to 8 flowers each for a longer flowering period. The 5 to 6-inch blooms are cheerful golden-yellow with black centers. First flowers appear just 50 to 65 days from sowing.
One of the biggest, thickest walled, sweet blocky bell peppers you can grow. The jumbo, juicy bells have marvelous flavor, weigh up to 9 ounces each, and mature from deep green to bright gold.
Regarded as one of the best yellow-fleshed, seedless watermelons available. Bright lemon-yellow flesh is juicy and dense with a high-sugar content giving it a wonderfully crisp texture and super-sweet flavor. Rounded fruits weigh 14 to 16 pounds each. The rind has dark green mottled stripes over a lighter green background.
Pantone Color Institute Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, suggests that the gray and yellow color combination expresses resilience and hope. Add rocks to your garden to capture the strong shade of gray and incorporate any of our yellow plants and fruits for uplifting cheerful tones. These colors are not only on-trend but can also create a feeling of warmth and optimism, just what we all need for 2021.
