Concerning transgenic origin of seeds supplied by Paramount Seeds.
We confirm that all of the varieties supplied by Paramount Seeds are bred by conventional breeding methods.
This includes the current production season and all previous years.
Paramount Seeds has never sold so called GMO varieties of any vegetable species.
Our suppliers provide us with varieties bred by placing pollen of one plant on the stigma of another plant. To the best of our knowledge, no one has yet attempted the commercial introduction of a vegetable variety bred by recombinant DNA techniques to create a genetically modified organism.
Although there are many research projects underway in many parts of the world, the only species for which GMOs are commercially available are, as far as we are aware, certain agronomic crops, including cotton, field corn (but not sweet corn), sorghum, soybeans and tobacco.
You can be confident that all items purchased from Paramount Seeds are Non-GMO and we would be happy to help with any questions you may have on this matter.
