  •  What is an "heirloom"? The definition is arguable however it is generally accepted that the term applied to fruit, flower or vegetables varieties that were being grown before World War II. Heirloom varieties are open-pollinated. This means that unlike hybrid varieties, the seeds you collect from one year will produce plants with most of the characteristics of the parent plant. Many heirloom varieties were preserved by home gardeners who saved seed from their family gardens from year to year. The seeds are open-pollinated, meaning they rely on natural pollination from insects or the wind.
