Want non-gmo sugar beet seeds

Anyone know where I can get guaranteed non-GMO sugar beet seeds? I’m thinking they might have to come from Europe. I want a bunch; by the pound would be better than by the packet.

    Emily,

    Try TerraEdibles ( http://www.terraedibles.ca ). They have some really interesting varieties. Also try Heiloom Organics ( http://www.non-hybrid-seeds.com ).

    Best of luck, LakeLili

    We got 1,000 sugar beet seeds last year at http://grocoseeds.com/

    They sell on ebay, but have an email where you can send questions.

    Any Certified Organic seeds will not be GMO by law… ask to see the company’s organic certificate to confirm that they are legally using the term ‘orgainic’.

    chefbrian – your website does not state non-gmo, only not round-up ready, as in “don’t use round-up on it”. It very likely IS at least a hybrid that one can’t save seed from and also likely a gmo. I sent them an email asking.

    Looks like all the correspondance was for 2010, and I am looking for non-GMO sugar beet seeds for this year, April 2011. Hope someone can help me find a few seeds, I want to grow and save my own for the future planting. Thanks, Sue Ann

    I found this web site
    http://www.siegers.com/shop/kind.asp?kind_id=F
    the site sells only bulk seeds by the pound, however they have open-pollinated Commercial-grade white sugar beet seeds. “open-pollinated” is the key phrase Open pollinated or OP plants are varieties that grow true from seed This means they are capable of producing seeds from this seasons plants, which will produce seedlings that will be just like the parent plant. It doesn’t say anything about non-gmo so you’ll have to shoot an e-mail to the company for more details…

    OH wait!! I found a much better option!!
    Try this site
    http://rareseeds.com/vegetablesa-c/beetroot/albino-beet.html
    “We only offer open-pollinated seeds:Pure, natural, and non-GMO”
    in addition HEIRLOOM, this sounds like the real deal and at 250 heirloom seeds
    for $2.75 sounds like something a back yard gardener like me can afford
