Description

**For US and Canada Shipping Only**
The Heirloom Organics Non-Hybrid Greens Pack is a collection of some of the most nutritious greens available. Providing a high concentration of nutrients with fast-growing, easy-to-grow varieties for fresh eating in green salads or as excellent cooked vegetables. The Heirloom Organics Non-Hybrid Greens Pack even includes Amaranth (a highly nutritious vegetable leaf from South America, often grown as grain as well). The Greens Pack contains 7 varieties of the most nutritious greens. 








DETAILS
Amaranth: Red Garnet 
Amaranth is a broadleaf plant that could be mistaken for soybeans early in the growing season by someone driving past a field. Late in the season, however, there is no mistaking this striking, tall crop which develops brilliantly colored grain heads producing thousands of tiny seeds. Amaranth was a major food of the Aztecs and earlier American cultures, having been domesticated thousands of years ago.
Collards: Georgia 
One of the most nutritious of all greens. Collards are extremely popular in the South, and their popularity is growing rapidly in all other regions. Plants are easy to grow, tolerant of heat and cold and very rich in vitamins and minerals. The juicy leaves are delicious boiled, steamed, or as an addition to salads.
Kale: Red Russian 
A cold hardy delicate, flavorful variety of kale. Its leaves are frilly and oak leaved in shape and red veined, greenish purple in color. Ideal for fall crops. Enjoy its greens fresh in salads or steamed and stir fried alone or with other vegetables.
Kale: Blue Scotch 
This heirloom garden kale has finely curled, blue-green leaves. It is compact and very attractive, as well as highly nutritious. It is used fresh in salads, on sandwiches and steamed cooked. This variety better withstands colder weather than other varieties.
Kohlrabi 
Kohlrabi is a hardy biennial member of the cabbage family. It was first recorded being grown in northern Europe in 1554, and had reached North America at least by the early 1800's. The name is a German word meaning cabbage (kohl) - turnip (rabi), describing the turnip-like enlargement of the stem above the soil. Leaves stand out like spokes from the edible portion, the rounded stem section, which is commonly referred to as a bulb (even though botanically it is not a bulb). Although it is quite exotic looking, it is merely a different horticultural form of the same species to which common cabbage, kale, broccoli, and cauliflower belong. Its flavor is similar to that of turnips but milder and sweeter.
Spinach 
Calorie for calorie, leafy green vegetables like spinach with its delicate texture and jade green color provide more nutrients than any other food. Spinach is becoming more popular as evidenced by increases in consumption of both fresh (salads) and processed spinach. It is high in vitamins and minerals. Spinach reaches edible maturity quickly and thrives best during the cool, moist seasons of the year. During periods of warm weather and long days, spinach will produce seed. This cold-hardy crop can with-stand hard frosts with accompanying temperatures as low as 20 0F. Spinach can be overwintered for early spring production in many areas of the state.
Swiss Chard 
Either steamed, stir-fried, or young foliage eaten fresh, Swiss chard is an excellent kitchen green. With sufficient moisture, it won't bolt in summer - leaves can be harvested from late spring until first frost. Tolerates partial shade well.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 
Q: How long will my seeds last?
A: Shelf life varies depending on the seed, but it ranges from 1-10 years dependent on the type of seed.  Herbs and Teas have a shelf life of 2-3 years, vegetables and fruits range from 5-7 years, and grains range from 7-10 years.   Store all seeds in a cool, dry, and dark location to maximize life. Do not freeze and do not expose to heat.

Q: Why should I use non-hybrid (open pollinated) rather than hybrid seeds?
A:
  • Better Nutrition – Commercial Produce lacks nutrition, research has shown.
  • Sustainable Gardening - Saving Seeds is only possible with open-pollinated seeds
  • Economic Security – In recessions and depressions, FOOD IS ECONOMIC SECURITY
  • Food Supply Independence – If food supplies are challenged, home gardening is freedom.
  • Crop Diversity – Participate in saving the original strains from extinction
  • Investment Hedge – Seeds are an excellent alternative investment to paper money, stocks and securities, even gold if the markets were to dive long-term.
Q: Why should I buy Heirloom Organics Non-Hybrid Seed Packs?
A:
  • Best price – Heirloom Organics Seed Pack are wholesale or bulk amounts of seed sold in complete, integrated packs.
  • Largest Amount – Our Seed Packs are HUGE! From the Vault to the Farm Pack, we provide bulk quantities in our packs.
  • Long-Term Storage Prepared – We use the VAULTtm method to extend seed life up to twice.
  • Use now AND store for later – Our Packs are double sealed so you can use seeds this year and store the rest without harming the extended shelf-life.
Q: Can I open my seeds, use some and re-seal them for storage?
A: Yes. They are double sealed so you can reseal them without harming the shelf life.
Q: Can I buy individual packets?
A: No, we ONLY SELL COMPLETE SETS. This is the only way we can provide wholesale amounts AND process them for long-term storage. Sorry, No individual Packets and no replacements.
Q: Should I freeze my seeds?
A: Only if you plan to keep them there. Freezing DOES help extend seed life as long as they are not removed often.
Q: How Much will shipping be?
A: UPS determines the shipping amount. The shipping cost will be added to your order once you place it.
Q: Do you ship to Europe/Asia?
A: We only ship to U.S. and Canada currently. Agricultural restrictions between countries make it very difficult to ship seeds.
Q: You DO ship to Canada?
A: Yes we do, however, Canada restricts some grains like wheat, barley and rye. We must provide replacements on some packs and some we cannot ship at all. Please see the list.
Q: What are Heirloom seeds?
A: Heirloom seeds are simply the oldest strains of open pollinated seeds. Varieties that were commonly grown during early periods of history. No one really agrees at what age a seed becomes 'heirloom'. Some say fifty years, others disagree. It is not necessary to have "heirloom" seeds for a survival or preparedness garden. Open pollinated seeds are what is required.
Q: What about variety replacements?
A: Due to ongoing seed shortages, seed varieties subject to change without notice. Replacements will be as close as possible and will be included in your order documentation.
Q: Do I get instructions or assistance?
A: Yes! When your product arrives, you will have access to the largest Organic Growing Guide on the internet for free, 24/7 information.
