What Is Non-GMO?
All of our seeds are non-GMO and have been since our inception in 1856. For more information on our philosophy please see our Safe Seed Pledge.
GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. In agriculture, this label refers to crops whose DNA has been modified using genetic engineering methods in a laboratory. This modification is done most often to alter the traits of a plant or to introduce new traits that it would not have naturally. Ferry-Morse does not carry GMO seeds.
No. Hybrids are the result of cross-pollination between two different plant varieties to produce a hybrid offspring with the traits of each of the parents. The genetic material of the plant has not been altered. Cross-pollination can happen in nature without human intervention.
