Seed Company Spotlight~ Native Seeds

So I'm doing a spotlight on this company i just found called Native Seeds.

Native Seeds is a non-profit conservation organization based in Tucson, Arizona. They have been around since 1983 and is a contributor to the heirloom seed movement.
Their seed bank includes 1800 varieties of arid-land adapted agricultural crops, many of them rare or endangered and they offer (currently) 350 varieties of fruits and veggies from their collection.

They dont have a large selection but they specialize in the Southern drought resistant seeds which means they should grow here!!

Categories are as follows:
~ Amaranth
~ Beans
~ Chickpeas
~ Chilies
~ Corn
~ Cotton
~ Cow Peas
~ Devils Claw
~ Gourds
~ Herbs/ Greens
~ Indigo
~ Lentils
~ Luffa
~ Melons
~ Okra
~ Onions
~ Panic Grass
~ Peas
~ Sorghum
~ Squash
~ Sunflowers
~ Tobacco
~ Tomatillos
~ Tomatoes
~ Watermelon
~ Wheat
~ Wildflowers

Besides their seeds they sell.. Books, Soaps, Salves, Crafts, Baskets, and Food Products

Shipping seems a little hefty for a 15$ order shipping was ~ USPS First-Class Mail ($6.05 )... but for $45 worth of seeds the shipping price was $6.22 so if you purchase from them make sure your getting enough seeds to make it worth the price : )
