Vegetable Seeds

Categories Vegetable Seeds

Here we introduce vegetable seeds of old and new varieties. Old heirloom vegetables convince with many unique properties. They are often extremely unassuming and resistant and can bring an enormous variety and exciting new tastes into your kitchen, and many of them are rich in health-promoting ingredients.
But there are also some newer vegetable varieties that were selected for their robustness and high palatability using traditional breeding methods.

Vegetables is actually not a very accurate term, since it refers both to all plants which are grown and harvested for consumption of their edible parts - such as roots, leaves, buds - as well as some fruit or seeds, as is the case with pumpkins and beans. Exactly how vegetables can be distinguished from fruit is unclear. But the fact is that vegetables and their cultivation accompany the history of mankind from the very beginning.

There are mainly annual and biennial vegetables which are harvested one year after sowing at the latest and then need to be planted again. Perennial species are the exception. For many species, the exact origin can not be determined, because an active global exchange of vegetable seeds started already very early. Original cultivars of old vegetable varieties, also called Heirloom varieties, however, are usually well documented. In addition, their seeds are open pollinated and unaffected by modern genetic manipulation (GMO) due to their breeding history.
