The unlikely pairing of two very different yet widely celebrated parents, GMO (aka: Garlic Cookies) and Purple Punch, Modified Grapes makes for a surprisingly satisfying union of sweet and savory. For all you bon vivants out there, Modified Grapes is a must partake. Bred by Symbiotic Genetics, this unique hybrid strain brings together sweet and fruity grape candy with a gassy, garlicky, umami deliciousness. The plump meaty buds contrast light mint and deep eggplant coloring with a thick peach fuzz layer of trichomes. Try it for the unique flavor, but the flawless high will have you coming back for more. Effortless and relaxed, Modified Grapes has a smooth blend of clarity and comfort, combining a handful of humor and a dash of gusto that will keep you feeling on top of your game.

Modified grapes seeds

You’ve probably heard the term “hybrid vigor” indicating the improved and superior qualities arising from crossbreeding of genetically different plants or animals. In the same way that Mendel’s peas and Thompson’s grapes outperformed their parent crops and/or had the capability to meet a demand segment, so are the hybrid seeds developed for agricultural production today.

Gregor Mendel is widely recognized as the first person to use cross breeding techniques to develop new and “unnatural” pea hybrids. That was back in the mid 1800s!

How many of us have been eating seedless grapes our entire lives without a second thought as to how it could have been produced or the safety of consuming?

Brett and Krista Swanson

The difference is that today we have the biotechnology available to speed up this process so that new hybrids with advanced genetic material can be developed quicker instead of through millions of test trails, hours of challenging manual labor, and numerous growing seasons.

Organic or not, all seedless grapes are “unnatural”. Although a rare mutant plant could be natural, the seedless form is not naturally occurring. The process of growing seedless grapes uses a form of asexual reproduction. The new plant is essentially a genetic clone of the original parent plant which requires manual manipulation with the plants genetic material.

In my opinion, the biotechnology that allows efficient and timely development of GMO seeds used in production agriculture today is the reason we have an abundant and affordable food supply that is no less safe than seedless grapes.

About Krista

Maybe that mutant seedless grape plant could reproduce naturally? While this is a good thought, it’s not possible because the natural process for grape plant reproduction is through seed. The only way for a mutant seedless grape plant to reproduce is through the unnatural (for the grape plant) and manual asexual reproduction process.

Cross breeding and manipulating plant genetic material can be a good thing! I’m sure thankful for seedless grapes, especially when I get home from the grocery store and discover the bag I picked up isn’t. Ugh!

Genetically modified seedless grapes are easy to imagine; a scientist knows which genes to alter to prevent the plant from making seeds, and propagates it through cuttings, essentially making clones of the original plant.

This is a very interesting question because it begs the question, “what exactly is genetic modification”.

Technically, artificial selection depends on genetic modification, but it can make do with natural genetic modifications like mutations. The fear of genetic modification that causes it to be banned from organic food is a fear of artificial genetic modification, i.e. intentional mutants, instead of naturally-occurring mutants. Organic growers can (and, indeed, must) use mutants that have occurred naturally, since natural mutation is the source of all differences between different living things (for example, the difference between you, a human being, and a grape vine, all amounts to about a billion years’ worth of natural mutations, filtered by the gauntlet of natural selection).
