Heirloom plants are vintage varieties preserved by passing down seed through generations.
Generally, 50 to 100 years old, heirlooms are always open-pollinated and usually breed true to type. Their benefit is that they are sustainable.
You can save seeds from year to year indefinitely. They were selected for flavor and quality as well as ease of growth.
