  -> Thanks, John. 'Heirloom cultivars' sounds good here.

neutral  Martina Burkert: cultivar=Sorte; Heitloom=althergebrachte Sorten (oft im Gegensatz zu Hybriden). Sonderkulturen=specialty crops; Kulturen, deren Anbau arbeits- und kostenintensiv ist, z.B Weinbau, viele Gemüse, Obstbau, Schnittblumen usw. Oft in kleinem Maßstab (Gärten)
