Are Burpee Seeds non-GMO?
I always wondered if Burpee Seeds are non-GMO because they do sell organic seeds. So I sent an email to the company and I was happy to get the reply copied below. Then I asked if they were going to sign the Safe Seed Pledge and they replied that they are studying it. The message below is from Rita in the Customer Service Department at Burpee.
NONE of the varieties offered by Burpee either from very large or very small seed suppliers are GMO (genetically modified or altered) or modified chemically in any way. All of our seeds are sold untreated, so the gardener can choose to plant untreated, or use chemical or organic treatment or supplements as they see fit. Burpee is committed to providing the best “natural” seed portfolio in the industry to our Home Garden customers, and stand behind what we sell.
