What are Heritage and Heirloom Seeds?

Heritage and heirloom seeds come from old plant varieties. They are the seeds your grandparents would have grown. Today many commercial varieties of fruit and vegetables have been hybridized or genetically modified to improve shelf-life, to increase production, or to make plants resistant to chemical herbicides and pesticides. Heirloom plants were selected naturally for their taste, texture and resilience; plain and simple! Because heirloom and heritage seeds come from a time long before industrial pesticides and fertilizers, they are hardier when it comes to pests and weeds. They had to be in order to survive. Heirloom and heritage plants produce an array of delicious and nutritious food and thrive in home gardens. Heritage seeds also offer a lot more variety than conventional seeds. There is a whole world of unique, interesting, and often endangered varieties out there that are being rediscovered every growing season by gardeners like you. The race is on to save this precious resource.

What are open pollinated seeds?

All heirloom and heritage seeds are open-pollinated. Open pollinated seed varieties are public property and part of nature. Unlike hybrids and genetically modified varieties, they are not owned, nor controlled by any one person or company. They are seeds that can naturally reproduce themselves; bearing fruit that will grow plants with the same qualities as their parents. This means that, if you follow proper seed-saving guidelines, you can save your own seeds and end up with the same variety as you started with. Open pollinated seeds can also cross-pollinate; promoting genetic diversity. When one variety pollinates another, the resulting seeds will have new characteristics based upon those of the parent plants. Note: Cross-pollination does not affect the fruit born in the current season. Only the seeds of those fruit, if they are planted in later years, will contain the new genetic traits. If you grow a specific variety from us, those are the fruit that you will harvest, whether pollinated by you, the wind, or the birds and the bees.

Why are these types of seeds important?

Because of large-scale, commercial agriculture, many heirloom and heritage seed varieties have already been lost. Did you know that out of thousands of tomato varieties, you're likely to only find six or seven at your grocery store? Thankfully, there has been a resurgence of public interest in food security that crosses all demographic boundaries! Preserving genetic food diversity, having the choice to grow our own seeds, and being able to provide delicious, nourishing food for our families is something we can all appreciate.
