About San Diego Seed Company

Nine years ago, when owner Brijette Peña came to the stark conclusion that few companies were producing regionally adapted seeds for Southern California climates, she took an oath. An oath to produce organic, regionally adapted seeds that gardeners, farmers and market growers could depend on. This lofty goal has led to the amazing development of San Diego Seed Company.  Through her seed company she not only produces heirloom varieties well adapted for the Southern California growers but she also facilities and promotes ethical seed production aimed at providing growers the best varieties for their success.
