At Heritage Harvest Seed, we specialize in rare & endangered heirloom vegetable, flower & herb seed. Our main goal is preserving these time honoured cherished heirlooms for all to enjoy. All of our seed is open pollinated, non-hybrid, non-GMO, untreated, natural seed. Heirloom Seeds, also called Heritage Seeds, are open pollinated varieties that are usually atleast 50 years old.
Heirloom seeds have much more genetic diversity than modern varieties and are well known for exceptional taste, aroma and higher nutrient content. The variety may be a commercial heirloom, which was introduced to the public by seed companies many years ago or the variety may be a family heirloom. Family heirlooms are varieties that were initially selected for by farmers and home gardeners and passed down the generations as cherished heirlooms. Many of these varieties were brought to North America by immigrants during the late 1800's or earlier. It was also very common for early pioneers and seed companies to adopt Native American varieties as their own.
