Re: Burpee

After reading this review and looking at a few other seed catalog reviews on this site and doing a bit of research about Monsanto and Burpee online I decided to post this comment in the interest of accuracy and fairness.

To be fair, Burpee does sell Seminis products and Seminis is owned by Monsanto, but...several other companies in the seed company list on this site also sell Seminis products (Johnny's Selected Seeds, Park Seed Company, Willhite Seed Co., Tomato Grower's Supply). So, if one discriminates against Burpee on the basis that one believes they sell GMO's because they sell Seminis products and consistency is important, one should discriminate against all the companies listed on the list who sell Seminis products. I didn't see negative comments about the other seed companies listed in my comments who also sell Seminis products. I didn't see any evidence that Burpee or any of these companies are owned by Monsanto or it's subsidiaries. For further info, please do check out the site in Twunky's comment above:
