Heirlooms, “The only unaltered, pure, secure food source”
Heirlooms are proven to possess a much higher nutritional value since they maintain their original traits. Heirlooms also maintain their flavor and texture traits. This is why they taste better than commercial, conventionally grown vegetables because those traits remain unaltered. If grown organically, these traits are even further enhanced.
Why Florida Backyard Vegetable Gardener Heirloom Seeds?
I specifically hand pick the seeds we sell for Florida. I acclimate them to our climate, environment and area (higher temperatures & humidity). We start them, we grow them, we collect and save them, all with our own hands. For those we can’t grow and save enough of you can be assured they are from the original source other local growers that also have the highest standards. I only sell those I have grown, and grew successfully; If I haven’t, I won’t sell it. Heirloom seeds are proven to have more vitamins & minerals than commercial-convention vegetables because they are non altered & non modified. Heirloom seeds grow naturally and have their original traits. Needless to say of course, Heirlooms Taste Better! Organic methods also provide them with more nutrients. By adding organic matter and other organic components to the soil, they replenish and rebuilds the minerals & micro-nutrients in the soil. Herbicides & synthetic fertilizers use chemicals which harm the natural rebuilding process and create toxic runoff which is bad for the environment. All our seeds and plants are open pollinated. (Which really goes without saying since they are heirloom seeds). That means you can save the seeds and they will grow true to type (like the original plant). By growing Heirlooms over and over in an environment they naturally adapt to our pests & diseases which in turn builds their defenses. Buy our seeds and plants and save the seeds and you will never have to buy them again! We signed the “Safe Seed Pledge”
