Since the establishment of Known-You Seed, we have always engaged in developing the agricultural sector, breeding outstanding new varieties, prospering the rural areas, bringing better welfare to our farmers, as well as all mankind. This year, we are celebrating our 43rd anniversary, and all of us, the second generation now at Known-You, diligently and faithfully follow these corporate goals. We aim to improve the well-being of human kind and have taken up an important mission to “Follow the good tradition and strive to open up the new future.” Apart from committing more efforts in vegetable breeding and carrying it forward, we are also taking actions to counteract the food shortage caused by universal climate change and global warming in the recent years. We believe that encouraging people to eat more vegetables, while cutting down on the consumption of meat, can reduce the air pollution and global warming caused by Methane emissions. Besides, it can bring calmness and peace to our minds, moderate conflicts, bring our life back to nature, beautify the earth, as well as purify the human soul.
In our previous Catalog No. 19 issued in 2010, we have introduced more than 30 new vegetable varieties, hoping to increase the grower’s profit and the customer’s wellbeing. Now, in celebration of the about-to-be-completed Known-You New Building Complex and embracing the new Known-You era, our managerial and R&D teams have selected from “the best of our outstanding collections” and combined them with some other excellent varieties to publish this special edition catalog. Some of the new vegetable varieties include: the very unique and special sweet-&-sour tasting melons “Bonny” and “Prity”, the innovative and beautiful pink-fleshed watermelons “Fain Beauty” and “Dionysos”, the crisp and delicious yellow-fleshed seedless watermelon, and the orangecolored balsam pear. For flower varieties, we present the colorful and elegant Eustoma “Melody” series, which perform well in the hot summer season. This special memorial edition of our catalog also intends to bring you more choices and a smoother guide to “Vegetarian Foods” which are being advocated worldwide these days. At the same time, we anticipate that with the completion of our brand-new Operation Headquarters in the memorable centennial year of our nation, we will devote our utmost efforts to beautify and purify the earth. Moreover, we wish our new generation will also keep developing more diversified and productive vegetable cultivars with higher nutritional value, and bring a more affluent and better life to everyone!
