That is kinda weird. 

 

 

Although if there was some cross breeding to eliminate seeds, an orange can still be grown organically. Just not GM crap... 

 

 

It is odd that it doesn't have even the little dot seeds in there. I dunno if I've ever seen an orange that didn't at least have those....

Doesn't acid rain ruin organic attempts? I still think organic is nonsense. Lol

Good blurb here about seedless fruit:

Perfectly compatible with organic growing. :)

That's what I was thinking.

Were they Naval brand mini oranges?

Did you plant it by seed? They graft seedless oranges. Look towards the bottom of the trunk and look to see if you see a graft.

In some states the organic certifcation is ridiculous.

You can grow hydroponically with water-soluble nutes and be considered organic.

At the same time, you can grow in soil with compost but if your seeds were sourced from someone who didn't grow 100% organic, you can't get certified.

In many cases this leads to propagation of disease and can really hurt small farmers.

I'm sure one day you will be able to use Round-Up and still be "organic."

All of this. Not to mention a ridiculous financial burden on smaller farms, trying to get certified.
