These organic Bartlett pears from Trader Joe’s seem to be seedless. Their seeds seem mostly white and thin with some black mixed in. Kind of like the “seeds” in seedless watermelon. The seeds are shown on the right side of the open pear.

Trader Joe’s private label foods claim to be non-GMO. So are these pears truly non-GMO organic? Is it possible to cross breed organic pears to be seedless? Was there GMO cross contamination?

Twitter answer: @farmwars: @JJDippold Bartlett pears normally have seeds - in Sacramento Valley, they often are seedless because of the favorable climate.
