Living What We Do
About Our Garden
As part of the brand commitment to sustainable agriculture, the Seminis Home Garden team contributed to Earth Day 2016 by planting a community garden outside company headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri. Just like Seminis hand-selects the best products to meet grower needs, the community garden features many Seminis AAS (All-American Selections) winning varieties of peppers, tomatoes, squash and broccoli that Monsanto team members will harvest and enjoy with their families. Seminis Home Garden is a unique segment within the Seminis global brand that is focused on selecting seeds best suited for home gardeners.
Or garden allows us to share our products with our customers, and showcase the awesome varieties that have been tested in our commercial line and hand-selected to be in our Home Garden line. We will be sharing this garden and its progress with those customers on a regular basis – primarily through social media.

Pepper Pickling Recipe
10-12 Sweet Sunset peppers (or Hot Sunset, if you like a little kick!)

2 garlic cloves per jar
Red pepper flakes
- Add all ingredients, except the peppers, into a large pot and boil the mixture.
- Slice the peppers into thin rings. Fill the jars with the pepper slices.
- Pour the hot mixture into the jars to completely cover the pepper slices and seal the jars.
