Our ancestors grew vegetables mostly out of necessity. When they came across a vegetable that thrived within their local environment and also tasted great, they saved the seed to allow it to be grown again year after year. Seeds in those days were "open pollinated" and not "owned" by a big corporation, so could be grown freely and true to form each year.
These seeds then became an heirloom (pronounced "air-loom"). Much like precious pieces of jewellery or furniture might be passed down from generation to generation, these seeds were saved year after year and given to others to grow their own piece of history. Many heirloom seed varieties are thousands of years old, each with its own unique story and heritage.
Heirloom vegetables are all about taste, with the added bonus of vibrant colour, unique shapes and sizes that are rarely found in supermarkets or green grocers.
You will be amazed at the number and variety of vegetables that actually exist.
