Save Our Garden Heritage Today

Have you tasted an heirloom tomato warm from the garden?

  The Cherokee Purple Tomato was introduced by North Carolina member Craig LeHoullier who originally got the seed from J.D. Green of Tennessee.

Tomatoes so delicate a slight fingertip can pierce the skin, bursting rich flavor - sweet and complex, dusky deep red in color.

The tastes, textures, and colors of the past are often missing from modern kitchen tables.

We have over 6,000 varieties of tomatoes currently under our care in an array of textures, tastes, and colors that are as true today as they were organically grown generations ago in backyard gardens.

Your support can continue to save these rare treasures for future generations.

Your donation to the Annual Fund at Seed Savers Exchange makes a difference.  You save rare and heirloom varieties that have dropped out of the common marketplace, keeping them available for gardeners and farmers for years to come.

Help preserve heirloom flavors for the future.
