Some tomatoes grown are GMO. This type of tomato can remain fresher longer increasing the life of the fruit.
Sugar cane also has a GMO cousin that is resistant to pesticides and has a higher sucrose content making it sweeter.
Some farmed fish have been genetically altered to improve growth in a smaller pond.
Soy, cotton, and rice have all become commonly modified crops to make them more profitible. Up to 25 countries are now using genetically modified crops.
