Are any of your seeds GMO (Genetically modified organisms) ?
No we do not sell any GMO seeds or plants.
What is the difference between GMO and Hybrid seeds?
GMO seed varieties are created in a lab using high-tech and sophisticated techniques like gene-splicing. Although by regulation, it has to be certified to be safe for human consumption, the long term effects of consuming the resulting produce are not known.
Hybrid seeds, on the other hand are produced by cross-pollinating two varieties of the same plant, where desirable traits of each parent plant may be passed onto the successive generation (F1). This actually occurs all the time in nature and the resulting plant and fruit (or vegetable) is safe to consume.
Can we pick up our seed order rather than having it mailed?
We are strictly a mail-order company, and there is no direct outlet for pickup of plants or seeds. However, we do have two retail partners in New Jersey.

Do you carry seeds for Tindora (ivy gourd) or parval (pointed gourd) ?
No, we do not carry seeds for any of the above, because they are best propagated by cuttings. We do offer Tindora cuttings and potted plants from April to November. We are constantly trying to import/propagate Parval and Kantola plants for the US market, but with limited success thus far.
Do you carry seeds for Curry Leaf (Murraya koenigii), Neem tree (Azadirachta indica) or parijat (Nyctanthes arbor-tristis)?
Unfortunately, seeds for Curry-leaf, Neem tree and Parijat need to be be planted soon after harvest, and do not store well (Recalcitrant seeds), so we do not usually carry seeds for these varieties. However, during the warm months (April to November) we do carry live plants of Curry leaf. Occasionally we do carry Neem tree and Parijat .
