What are Heirloom Seeds? What are Heirloom Seeds? Presentation Transcript

  • WHAT ARE HEIRLOOM SEEDS?
  • Heirloom seeds are a special type of seed that have been handed down from one generation to the next. They're often at least 50 years old, although some of them have been around for 100 to 150 years.
  • Heirloom seeds are classified as open-pollinated cultivars, meaning they went through natural pollination rather than artificial or controlled pollination.
  • As a result, the seeds remain “true to type” and identical to their parent plant, so the seeds will produce crops just like their original varieties.
  • The great thing is that you can just save the seeds year after year without the need to purchase new seeds. Not only do you save money, but you also get to participate in the tradition of passing down seeds to the next generation.
  • Aside from their impressed age, desirable traits and cost efficiency, heirloom seeds are also known for their superb quality. They have the freshest, healthiest and tastiest produce because they are specifically selected for that purpose.
  • They say once you go with heirloom plants, you can never go back. They’re very easy to grow, come in a multitude of varieties, and simply taste the best. So if you want to start eating well, you can always start by planting your own heirloom seeds today!
