Are seedless fruits genetically modified?

    Depends on who you ask. Some people feel that hybridization and selective breeding, such as has gone on for hundreds if not thousands of years, is a form of intentional genetic modification. In that case, yes seedless fruits are genetically modified.
    They are produced by breeding not laboratory gene transfer.
    For centuries people have changed organisms’ genetic make-up by choosing individual plants and animals with particular traits, like fast growth rates or good seed production, and breeding from them. This is selective breeding and is, in a sense, similar to evolution by natural selection.
