From Our Collection
Seed Savers Exchange preserves approximately 20,000 varieties in our seed bank, including rare heirlooms stewarded for generations within a family or community and historic commercial varieties introduced to the seed trade before 1950.
Every year, our preservation team evaluates a selection of these varieties by growing them out, adding more seeds to our inventory in the process. When varieties are determined to be a strong performer in the garden and pass our taste test, they are offered here in our catalog, for all to enjoy, along with a bit of their story.
Our primary purpose as a nonprofit is to steward this incredible collection. And nothing feels more like success than getting these varieties back where they belong—in your garden and on your table.
When you purchase seeds from us, you are helping to fulfill our mission to protect our food and garden heritage.
