The Q&A Archives: Seed Genetically Engineered?

Question: Corn and soybeans are common seeds that are genetically engineered or modified. Are any of your seeds genetically engineered? If so, please let me know which ones are. Also, are there other brands of garden seeds that are genetically engineered?


Answer: Probably the surest way to avoid altered seeds is to purchase only heirloom varieties. The Burpee Catalog lists a number of heirloom and "old-fashioned" varieties of many commonly grown veggies. (An example of an heirloom tomato is Brandywine.) Visit the Burpee website and request a catalog if you don't already have one.
