Conventional Seed are mostly hybrids. Creating by artificially cross-pollinating two plants with specific characteristics to produce a plant with the strongest assests of each parent. the seeds produced by the hybrid plant, however, do not typically produce a plant identical to the parent, but instead goes back a generation to the strongest grandparental plant.
GMO Seed: This seed is typically found in stores. They are genetically altered organisms. The genes of another species (animal or phyto) have been inserted into a conventional seed to make it 'super'. Some tomatoes, for example, have been injected with genes of a fish to make it resistant to frost. These seeds are sterile. If you want more seed you must go back & repurchase. 20 yrs ago we had over 5000 forms of seed to chose from. today we have about 500. Here's a tip: next time you purchase from the store look at the PLU code:a five digit number beginning with an 8, is a GMO food. If its a 4 numbered code, its a hybrid. Starts with a 9=organic. Consider yourself informed.[Read More]
