Where and How to get Heirloom Seeds

This tomato was .99 a lb. That’s the price for having a piece of history in our food. Heirloom varieties aren’t that cheap. It’s nice to start growing some. :) Continue to follow me on…

  1. I think it’s a good idea to know how to extract seeds from fruit. However,
    a packet of seed from a seed provider is usually only $1.50 to $2.50 for
    twenty-five to a hundred seeds. $4.99 for a tomato is extreme.

    Luke, the king of the Tomato Jungle! I was very hesitant on buying them. I
    just couldn’t believe their price! But it’s all worth it in the end, right?

    Me too, Peter! Yumz!

  7. Very informative…thanks, Jane!

  8. Years ago the big seed companies tried to pass rule which would have
    destroyed the small heirloom seed producers by making them pay a
    registration fee for every variety! For this reason individuals began to
    champion the heirlooms and these collections are really good places for
    seeds. For example, La Château de la Bourdaisière has 650 varieties of
    tomato, my favourite is Black Crimean. Check out collections near you. For
    my heirloom apples, I helped pruning their collection and got free grafts.

  9. Thanks Jane! I hope you get lots of big heirloom tomatoes! :D

    That’s a pretty neat idea, Romi! And yes, I do plan on planting this
    beauty. In fact, after I made the video, I planted the seeds in a tray. :)

  11. best of all, heirlooms taste great! I’ve got peach tasting yellow ones
    growing in my garden. don’t know what it’s called since it came out of a
    mixed packet of heirlooms. but I’ll def be saving its seeds

  12. Looking forward to the updates ;)

  13. well you’re suppose to collect all the seeds regardless this size and the
    juice of it and contain them in a air tight jar to let them go through a
    fermenting process so as they will be much more viable to store throughout
    your next growing season and by fermenting the seeds they will be much
    healthier and be much stronger plants and less disease will fall upon them
    =D happy growing!

  14. That’s a pretty tomato! Will you be growing this variety in your garden
    this year? We should start a “tag” at the end of the season and have
    YouTubers go over their heirloom tomatoes and discuss how they save their
    seeds for the next season. I have a few that I plan to grow this year and I
    think it will be fun to see the different types of heirloom tomatoes in
    everyone’s garden. Great Video Jane! -Romi
