Thanks for posting. It's so hard to stay ahead of the bioengineering game.

It would be great if some experienced apple growers could take a moment to check the page out and respond to their claims that cross-pollination is near-impossible.

It would be very difficult for genes from this GMO apple to contaminate other apple crops, because the seeds from apples are not generally planted.

However, the genes could enter the wild crabapple gene pool. And the gene pools of anyone who is trying to breed new apple varieties, or planting the seeds from their orchard just to see what they'll get, could be contaminated.
