Enjoy a wonderful assortment of some of our best strains preserved from the past. Heirloom plants are grown on a small scale and are raised from seed varieties that are are over 70 years old. With unique shapes, sizes, and colors, heirloom plants often look different from commercial hybrids, which make up the bulk of supermarket vegetables. Heirloom seeds are preserved for a special reason because they may have produced an exceptionally abundant crop for villagers long ago.
A time-honored tradition for some, heirloom seed use is becoming a trendy way for the modern day gardener to experience the old fashion flavor and unique appearance of often sought after vegetable varieties from years gone by. Varieties in this package are chosen to be productive in most climates throughout the United States. Makes a great gift for many reasons!
