IF YOU ARE THE KIND OF GARDENER who buys vegetable seeds or seedlings (including tomato plants) from a local garden center, as I sometimes do, beware the varieties you select. Otherwise, you could very well be putting money into the hands of the wretched Monsanto Corporation. Forewarned is forearmed, right? Here is the list of Seminis/Monsanto home-garden vegetable varieties, and yes, it even includes zucchini: I’m going to print out this list, and keep a copy in my wallet. This way I won’t be caught off-guard the next time I decide to impulse-shop at a big-box garden center:

Beans: Aliconte, Brio, Bronco, Cadillac(sic!), Ebro, Etna, Eureka, Festina, Gina, Goldmine, Goldenchild(sic!), Labrador, Lynx, Magnum, Matador, Spartacus(sic!), Storm, Strike, Stringless Blue Lake 7, Tapia, Tema

Sweet Corn: Devotion(sic!), Fantasia, Merit(sic!), Obession, Passion, Temptation

Sweet Pepper: Baron, Bell Boy, Big Bertha PS, Biscayne, Blushing Beauty, Bounty, California Wonder 300, Camelot, Capistrano, Cherry Pick, Chocolate Beauty, Corno Verde, Cubanelle W, Dumpling brand of Pritavit, Early Sunsation, Flexum, Fooled You brand of Dulce, Giant Marconi, Gypsy, Jumper, Key West, King Arthur, North Star, Orange Blaze, Pimiento Elite, Red Knight, Satsuma, Socrates, Super Heavyweight, Sweet Spot

Tomato: Amsterdam, Beefmaster, Betterboy, Big Beef, Burpee’s Big Boy, Caramba, Celebrity, Cupid, Early Girl, Granny Smith, Health Kick, Husky Cherry Red, Jetsetter brand of Jack, Lemon Boy, Margharita, Margo, Marmande VF PS, Marmara, Patio, Phoenix, Poseidon 43, Roma VF, Royesta, Sun Sugar, Super Marzano, Sweet Baby Girl, Tiffany, Tye-Dye, Viva Italia, Yaqui

Watermelon: Apollo, Charleston Grey, Crimson Glory, Crimson Sweet, Eureka(sic!), Jade Star, Mickylee, Olympia

Note: Not all of the veggie varieties in the above list are Monsanto/Seminis exclusives. Consequently if you spot some of these varieties in the catalog of an heirloom seed-seller, just check with the seller to make sure the seeds were not purchased from Seminis/Monsanto. But if you find these seeds on a rack at a big-box garden center, you have every right to suspect they were purchased from the evil empire.

That’s quite a catalog, huh? No wonder Monsanto paid $1.4 billion in cash to acquire Seminis Seeds. You can see the catalog for yourself on Seminis’s own website.

Don’t be embarrassed if you’ve inadvertently planted some of these varieties in your garden. As you might recall, one summer

I innocently planted ‘Early Girl’ tomatoes. Believe me, I won’t be casting that vote again.

Publicatia AgroStandard lanseaza Studiul de piata „Top 600+ Cele mai mari Exploatatii Agricole din Romania”, prima analiza de acest fel realizata vreodata in Romania. Studiul a fost realizat urmare a solicitarilor venite din partea mediului de afaceri, data fiind absenta informatiilor oficiale cu privire la fondul funciar din tara noastra, precum si a lipsei unor […]

Charles Simic Widespread ignorance bordering on idiocy is our new national goal. It’s no use pretending otherwise and telling us, as Thomas Friedman did in the Times a few days ago, that educated people are the nation’s most valuable resources. Sure, they are, but do we still want them? It doesn’t look to me as […]

Marius Serban Se pare ca romanii nu invata nimic, dar absolut nimic, din greselile trecutului. Exista similaritati intre “revolutia” de acum 26 de ani si miscarile de protest din 2015 din Piata Universitatii. Ambele evenimente au aparut pe un fond de revolta mocnita a unor mase extinse de oameni, ambele au fost declansate de incidente […]

Marius Serban Incet-incet Piata Universitatii incepe sa semene cu protestele de acum cativa ani care au debutat furtunos, insa, s-au fasait lamentabil, dirijate cu finete de manipulatorii serviciilor secrete. OK, ati dat jos niste neobolsevici patetici, reprezentantii unui sistem corupt, bolnav, un cancer care macina incet Romania. Pana aici este bine! Dar, de ce nu […]

Victor Roncea Am mai scris despre uriaşele sume de bani vehiculate de agenţi sub steag străin care pretind că lucrează “non-profit” în regim de “voluntariat”, pentru te miri ce: de la salvat balenele din Marea Neagră (chiar şi cele care SAR pe la TV) la salvat interesele noului KGB, bine reprezentate de “Reţeaua Deschisă” a […]
