Heirloom Varieties

Heirloom seeds come from open-pollinated plants that pass on similar characteristics and traits from the parent plant to the child plant.  They are grown and maintained on small scales in communities. They were commonly grown during earlier periods in human history and have been passed from generation to generation.
