My daughter sent this link from NPR this AM. Apparently there's been a mix-up, and Baker's seeds may have sold a GMO variety of tomato. Not just sold it, but made it a catalog cover.

Personally, I'm not concerned about GMO, as long as it isn't protected as intellectual property, like some of our large farm seed companies (well, ADM mostly) attempt to enforce.

Baker Creek addressed this in their FAQ:

"Baker Creek regrets to inform you that we will not sell seeds of the Purple Galaxy tomato, which we previewed in our 2024 catalogs. After repeated testing, we are unable to conclusively establish that the Purple Galaxy does not contain any genes that have been genetically modified. Baker Creek remains steadfast in its commitment to selling only heirloom and open-pollinated, non-Genetically Modified (“non-GM”) varieties."
