An important part of this concept is that the varieties have been grown in earlier times and "remain" unmodified by modern breeding technologies.  Heirloom seeds help to establish and define a preserved genetic heritage.

It's an imprecise term. It refers to 
  fruits/vegetables/roses/seeds that are not easily available from commercial 
  seed companies/nurseries. They were kept alive and in circulation by 
  individuals.
