Organic versus altered seeds

Good morning
My wife and I have been growing our own vegtables for the past six years since we meet with great success. We also have been harvesting our seeds for use in the fallowing years also with great success. However last night we had a question we hope you folks can answer...
Some of the seeds we harvested are from plants that were originally started with store bought seeds that were altered supposedly for the purpose of not being able to produce seeds. Regardless of the cause we have been able to get good seed from them, (Lettuce, brocoli, tomatoes, beans and corn).
My question is will this properties they originally put into the original seed grow out of the seed after a few seasons?
Thanks
Bizzy

Hi Bizzy.

The two types of seeds I use are hybrid, and heirloom seeds.

Hybrids do not grow back the same characteristics as the parent the next generation, but heirlooms do year after year.

This link has a good set of info of the different types of seeds out there.

You do not have to prove something for it to be true. However, you do have to prove something for others to believe it true.

Hi theremat,
My wife asked me to refraze my question. if you we grow plants from stor bought seeds aka treated seeds. and save seeds from those planst to use the following year, will the "stuff" used to treat those seeds eventually grow out after a season or two?
thanks
Bizzy

You can try it. Often plants you get from the store are hybrid plant, they have taken several plants offspring and kept combining them till they get a most desirable plant. Often the next offspring from an hybrid will have some of the characteristics of the parent, but not the same as the original plant.

To be sure best to get heirloom seeds and plant those. They will have the same characteristics of the parent year after year.

Hope that helps.

Cheers.

There was a great post on survivalblog.com covering the different types of seeds as part of a plan on how to start a survival garden, if you've never planted anything before.

One of the interesting points covered is that most plant based foods are from hybrid plants/seeds, where the plants have been developed over hundreds if not thousands of years - take wheat for example. Most if not all heirloom seeds are from plants descended from hybrids.

In regards to the OP’s question, I heard in a video presentation that I saw a while back, that seeds engineered to produce plants that do not produce seeds or more specifically, seeds that do not “activate” (the so called terminator seeds) actually start producing normal seeds after a couple of generations.

To paraphrase the "Life Finds A Way" line from Jurassic Park: nature finds a way.
