Heirloom Seeds

It’s amusing that Heirloom Vegetables are a current craze in home gardening, yet no one knows what heirloom vegetables are! One of the truest definitions is that an heirloom is a variety that has been selected, re-selected and handed down from one family member to another for many generations. Another definition places a date point on the variety. Some purists say a variety must be at least a hundred years old to be a true heirloom, while less strict experts state that an heirloom must have originated before 1951, the year that marked the widespread introduction of hybrid varieties to home gardeners.

While heirloom tomatoes are our most popular, virtually any vegetable we sell, from “A” to “Z,” contains at least one or two heirloom varieties. Our “Ping Tung Long” Aubergine hails from Taiwan; our “Black Beauty” Zucchini is just another of the numerous heirlooms we offer.
