No Need for GMO

Genetic engineering is not what we do. Rather, IFG has developed highly specialized best practices with traditional and natural breeding techniques taken to a whole new level of scientific sophistication. We have more than 160 acres of test fields at our Fruitworks | The IFG Discovery Center in McFarland, California where each year over a million fruit blossom. These blossoms are pollinated with a variety of desirable traits to produce plump, juicy fruit that often exceeds the demands of retailers and fruit wholesalers. Our varietals delight the taste buds of consumers of all ages!
