GMO- Yes or No? A frequent question asked today is whether our University Seeds are Genetically Modified (GMO).

The UH Rainbow Papaya seed is the only GMO product sold. This seed is resistant to the Papaya Ringspot virus.


Out of Hawaiian Chili, Cucumber Hybrids, Poamoho and Hawaiian Wonder Pole beans, & Manoa Sugar Pea.
