GMO- Yes or No? A frequent question asked today is whether our University Seeds are Genetically Modified (GMO). We are happy to report that the majority of our seeds are GMO-free.

The only exception is the UH Rainbow Papaya seed as they are GMO protected against the Papaya Ringspot virus.


Out of Sweet Basil, Manoa Pole Bean, Hawaiian Chili, & Waiamanalo Long B-1.

Good News is we got our Supersweet #9 Yellow corn harvested just before the rains! A small patch of Kahala Soybean was salvaged but we can only accommodate HGP packet size only. A large planting of Soybean is scheduled later this month. Will keep you posted.

Poamoho Pole beans are now in!

For other varieties, keep checking back for furtherupdates!
