What do we consider Heritage?
There are different definitions of a Heritage or Heirloom variety. For those purists, there are very few plants in the world that date back thousands of years in the case of potatoes, the oldest we grow dates back to the early 1800’s.
For this listing, we have only listed varieties that originate prior to 1950.
Each year we strive to source more Heritage varieties, however, there are only a limited number available in Canadian Gene Banks where all the seed potato stock material is stored.
