We are always on the look out for Heirloom trees and seeds. Heirlooms are also called heritage varieties. An heirloom or heritage plant is an open pollinated variety that has been grown for many years and passed down within a family or group. Heirloom varieties evolved over time by natural or human selection, often having wonderful taste, aroma and vitamin content. There are Family Heirlooms and Commercial Heirlooms. Family heirlooms are the varieties that have been passed down within the family for many years. Commercial Heirlooms are heirlooms that were either selected for or developed by seed companies many, many years ago.
