Is Orange Glow a Genetically Modified (GM) food?
No. Orange Glow pumpkins have been bred using a natural selection process.
The goal of both GM and natural plant breeding is to produce crops with improved characteristics by changing their genetic makeup. GM achieves this by adding a new gene or genes to the genome of a crop plant.
However, natural selection achieves this by crossing plants with relevant characteristics and selecting the offspring with the desired combination of those characteristics. This is what we have done with Orange Glow. We feel this is the most natural and eco-friendly way to create new and superior crops. Plus, it’s the way Mother Nature does it. So if it’s good enough for her, it’s good enough for us!
