Denali Seed Company sells seed for open-pollinated, heirloom, and hybrid seed varieties that are grown either by organic or traditional methods. All certified organic seed sold is identified as such in our seed list and is grown by organic methods. Denali Seed Company does not sell seed for genetically engineered organisms often referred to as GMO’s.

Our seed list includes open-pollinated, heirloom and hybrid varieties. What does this mean? Open-Pollinated varieties are varieties where both the male and female parents are the same variety and usually the male and female parts of the blossom are on the same plant which in turn cross pollinate to produce seed naturally. Hei rloom varieties are favorite open-pollinated varieties that have been grown by gardeners for a very long time, usually for over a hundred years. Seed collected from heirloom and other open-pollinated varieties produce plants nearly identical to the parent plants. Hybrid varieties, unlike open-pollinated varieties, are produced from a cross between two different parent varieties. One variety is the male plant and the other variety the female plant which cross pollinate by natural means to produce seed. Plants from the seed produced from this cross exhibit the best characteristics of both parent varieties. The hybrid variety is more vigorous than either parent variety and has traits that make it superior to the parent varieties. The seed produced on a hybrid plant will not grow plants identical to the hybrid plant, therefore the seed is not usually saved .

We hope this information will help you select the seed varieties best suited to your needs.
