NON GMO declaration
All vegetable varieties presently marketed by Russian Bazaar Seeds have been created using traditional breeding methods without the use of genetic modification techniques leading to genetically modified organisms
The methods used in the development and maintenance of those varieties are aimed at achieving high purity standards and avoiding the presence of off-types, including genetically modified organisms. Seed production has been carried out in accordance with existing legal requirements related to marketing of varieties and seed production rules including stipulated isolation distances. The risk of adventitious contamination in seed multiplication areas although unlikely cannot however be totally excluded.
Germination of seeds standard:
To achieve our aim of providing our gardeners and commercial growers with the highest quality agricultural seed available that also fits our ethical profile, Russian Bazaar Seeds tests our seeds regularly for seed germination , vigor and for the presence of weed seeds. All the seeds we sell meet, or exceed the Russian standards established by the Russian Agricultural Standards for Seed quality. The number found on each package of seeds refers to specific lots, which we use for quality control. Germination varies each year.
Seeds per gram:
Our seed counts (seeds per gram) are estimates only, based on grower sample counts and the standards as set out by the Russian Agricultural Department. Seed counts vary with each harvest and lot, sometimes dramatically. This number is provided as a guide for gardeners and growers to calculate productivity. These seed counts are useful as ESTIMATES ONLY and do not always reflect exact seed counts. Our seeds are packed by Seed Packaging Machine, by weight.
Seeds are live products, and your success in growing our seeds depends on many factors, including weather and the skills and practices of the grower (such as soil preparation, proper planting technique, irrigation and weed control). These factors are completely out of the control of Russian Bazaar Seeds and are the responsibility and risk of the grower. Yearly germination rates are noted on each grower package.

We do not assume the risk of non-performance, reduced performance or crop damage arising from our seed products.
