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.


On January 1st, 2019, our pricing for our seeds will be adjusted to keep up with the increasing costs to do business. A few varieties will be removed from our current list as well. HGP prices will be $1.50 and $4.50 for Hybrids.

We apologize for these changes and will continue to offer our popular UH developed varieties.

A new dark purple eggplant will be made available that we have high hopes for. It will be called "Poamoho Dark Long".

The new pricing will be made available the last week before January 1, 2019.
