The Culinary Seed Vault is where you'll find your common kitchen herbs and spices. Every herb in this vault is germination tested for quality and freshness. Each variety is packaged in its own resealable mylar packet, and tucked inside a resealable mylar parent bag for further protection.
Although we recommend planting and reproducing your culinary herb garden as soon as possible, our kits are designed to be stored for long periods of time so that you can save the kit for a future date.
14 Total Seed Varieties
Our Culinary Seed Vault was designed to compliment any vegetable survival garden with great tasting Kitchen Herbs and Spices.
Once you've started planting and harvesting your new Culinary Herb Garden, you'll never need to purchase seeds again. All of our varieties are Heirloom and Non-GMO, meaning you'll be able to harvest the seeds of annual varieties and plant them again year after year.
What's even better... These heirloom varieties are known to adapt to their growing environment generation after generation, giving the offspring of your new garden an even better production as the years go on.
How long will it last?
Remember... Treat all seeds as if they're a living organism. They will naturally lose viability over time and it's your job to make sure that they've got the best environment to survive (We've already provided the safest packaging).
The viability of seeds will vary for each type, but our heat sealed and moisture proof resealable packaging will help to keep them healthy for years to come.
At room temperature, you can expect your seeds to survive from 3-7 years. Stored in a cooler climate, you could easily expect a lifespan of 7 to 25 years. (especially when frozen)
Room Temperature: 3-7 Years
Refrigerated: 5-10 Years
Frozen (Recommended): 15-25 Years
Our packaging will provide medicinal security and insurance for years to come. It's the only survival insurance policy that will heal your family in an emergency.
Why is it so valuable?
Our Culinary Herb Garden contains 14 varieties of common (and not so common) kitchen herbs and spices that will compliment your existing vegetable garden. Each of our herbs were chosen for their flavor and medicinal properties. This vault makes a great companion to our Medicinal Seed Vault available separately.
Current Retail Potential: $11,375
(Value calculated as of 1/21/22)
Value is an estimate based on projected yield of dried herb, fresh herb, and expected seed production.
The Basil Plant: Basil, commonly used in Italian dishes, could easily be one of the most valuable plants in this vault. This high-yielding plant could fetch as much as $14/lb dried, or even more sold as fresh basil. Our Basil Seeds produce beautiful and potent heirloom plant.
Cilantro (Coriander): Cilantro seeds and dried herb are used in cooking. Aside from the great flair that Cilantro adds to many dishes, this herb has a ton of medicinal properties that you might not know of. Because of the potency of this herb, it's highly sought after as a bulk herb to be used in many different tinctures and concoctions. As a fresh herb, you could expect as much as $63/lb, whereas a dried cilantro could fetch nearly $21 per pound.
Oregano: This is an herb that you've likely already got plenty of in your spice cabinet. Aside from using Oregano in different dishes and sauces, much like Cilantro, Oregano is highly sought after as a medicinal herb and demands upwards of $15/lb to purchase bulk and dried.
Overall, the seeds contained in this vault can easily cover 3,500sq ft of condensed garden space. With such a small investment in these easy-to-grow herbs, you could not only stock your spice rack, but stock your wallet as well.
