Chad, first you want to define what you imply by “pure”. That’s an ambiguous term and may mean as much as “natural” does as we speak. Certified Organic solely signifies that the meals (or seed) was grown in response to the National Organic Program (NOP) standards, nothing extra, very like Kosher is a standard of food production. Both seed varieties might be heirloom, non-GMO, etc., and so forth. One is Certified Organic and the other isn’t. You also should perceive that heirloom and non-hybrid mean the exact same thing. All heirlooms are by definition non-hybrid. The identical applies with open pollinated and non-hybrid, they imply the same factor. Answering the question of “Are all your seeds natural? ” with “All seeds are 100% non-GMO” doesn’t reply the query in any respect. Yes, this could mean that the non-natural seeds had been grown with questionable methods, however that’s one thing that you simply would have to ask the corporate for additional clarification on. It seems to me that your query really relates to seed quality. This is necessary to know, and it takes attending to know the corporate better to know what high quality of seed they provide. We work onerous to supply the highest high quality seed possible, and we say this with out bragging or hesitation, as a result of we spend a lot of time on it. For extra data, read our article, “The Tale of Two Seeds- Heirloom vs Hybrid Seed Production.” “Caretakers of the Seeds” will also show you extra about how and why we’re “Seed People”. All of it comes all the way down to this – do you belief this company? Do they clarify what they are doing and why? Do they answer your questions, or leave you with more than you started with? Buy seeds from the corporate that you belief and really feel has the perfect, highest quality seeds available on the market. You won’t pay the bottom worth, however you won’t really feel let down either.
