As growers and gardeners, the founders of Eats, Shoots & Roots know how disappointing it is to have plants that don't do well! This is exactly why they only choose varieties that are easy to grow in the tropics like Malaysia! They select seeds that are non-hybrid and open-pollinated, which means that they will produce plants that can then later be saved for future seeds as it is important for people to be able to save their own seeds because seeds are not intellectual property and belong to everyone.
