We produce our feminized seeds with a process of manipulating female plants to create only female pollen (xx) by inhibiting copper absorption in the plant. Our seed production is carried out in pollen proof greenhouses during winter and early spring. We grow out thousands of plants and choose our breeding stock from only the pheno types that meet our rigorous standards. The clone stock of our breeding mothers and pollen donors has been tested in various environments including greenhouses, full term outdoors in different field environments across the Rogue Valley as well as at higher elevations when testing for cold resistance, etc.
