Aravaipa Heirlooms


We offer more than 150 varieties of tomato starts, and 100 pepper cultivars, plus a few other veggies and herbs. We also have heirloom tomato and tomatillo seeds.

Our specialties include:

1) Endangered heirloom vegetables, including every tomato and pepper boarded on Slow Food USA's Ark of Taste and red-listed by RAFT, the Renewing America's Food Traditions Alliance 

2) Desert tolerant varieties (adapted to heat, drought, low humidity, sunscald, or poor soil)

3) Local and regional heirlooms from the Southwest and Mexico (the most extensive collection on Earth, including many rare Zapotec cultivars)
