Rare & Unusual Heritage & Heirloom Seeds

We carry a number of seeds that might be considered rare or unusual, including:

1000 Year Old Tobacco (Nicotiana rustica?)
A few seeds were gifted to me in 2003 that were preserved in an urn from a burial site and thought to be over 1000 years old. Very different than any tobacco plant I've seen before. 3-foot plants with very broad leaves.

1000 Year Old Tobacco (Nicotiana rustica?)

Cheesmanii
Very old and rare North American heirloom tomato. Prolific. Large clusters of small orange pear-shaped gems. Piercing sweetness. Strong disease and blight resistance.
