Heirloom Vegetable Seeds

Heirloom vegetable seeds are seeds that are handed from one generation to the next - sometimes for more than hundred years. If you grow heirloom vegetables in your garden, you can harvest your own seeds.

Heirloom vegetables impress with many characteristics. They are often very undemanding and resistant, they bring amazing variety and taste into the kitchen and are rich in health-promoting ingredients. Often these species are still much closer to the actual wild plant, which is why they are usually more resistant and aromatic, but also produce less yield than modern cultivars. In fact, a lot of old vegetable varieties have disappeared from our modern diets because they can not be economically effective grown in market gardening. Luckily there's a significant movement of more and more people cultivating vegetables themselves and setting out to search for these lost delicacies.
