Heirloom Seeds : Vegetables



Nothing beats the pleasure of growing your own food, especially growing from seed.

Saved and passed down from generation to generation, heirloom seeds are old-time varieties (pre-dating the sixties) open-pollinated to capture exceptional taste, nutritional value, yield and disease resistance.

Based in Melbourne, The Little Veggie Patch Co. has been dedicated to helping people grow food since 2008. Each seed pack comes with detailed growing instructions. Choose from these popular vegetables or see separate listing for edible flowers and herbs.

Carrot 'Baby Amsterdam' : juicy, crisp and sweet, early harvest for baby carrots or leave to mature

Peas 'Snap Sugar Bon' : delicious sweet, crunch pods for garden snacking

Tomato 'Black Russian' : high quality dark skinned, sweet fleshed tomato

Tomato 'Tommy Toe' : produces an abundance of mid sized cherry tomatoes resilient to pests and disease

Tomato 'Yellow Pear' : heavy yields of sweet and juicy pretty little pear shaped tomatoes

Capsicum 'Wonder Sweet Bell' : the perfect bell shaped capsicum, thick walled, tender and flavoursome

Cucumber 'Green Gem' : grow in-ground or in a pot, perfect partner to mint, yoghurt, red onion and feta
