An heirloom seed variety has been saved and passed down from generation to generation. These seeds have been carefully cultivated and are considered a great value to the recipient. Some say an heirloom variety is 50 years old or more. Some heirloom varieties have been passed down for over 100 years and others for over 400 years.
Heirloom Seeds can be very unique like the Lemon Cucumber and others are just like the produce you buy in the store (only tastier) like the Roma Tomato.
