About Franchi Seeds Franchi Sementi is so much more than just packaged vegetable seeds; it’s a story of tradition, pride, experience, quality, and excellence handed down over seven generations. Franchi carries a large selection of vegetable, herb, and flower seeds, including an ever-growing number of certified-organic seed. Most are open-pollinated heirlooms that have been passed down through generations because of their great flavor. Franchi offers seeds from every region of Italy, helping to preserve the regionality of Italian cuisine. That's why you'll find, for example, 17 varieties of green zucchini — so that every regional specialty can be served.
