Syngenta is a large global Swiss chemicals company which markets seeds and pesticides. My backyard tomatoes are not doing so well this year. No pollinators & nasty weather. So I tried the Syngenta Kumato tomatoes. It's a black variety & pretty tasty, and grown in Kingsville greenhouses by Mastronardi Produce. Product is ok for a supermarket tomato. But it's a patented gene & Syngenta owns the entire supply chain from seed to supermarket. It's not GMO, but is a hybrid so saving seeds is futile. I really don't think that companies should be able to own life.
