Summerland orchardist Joe Sardinha said, “I’m not concerned about the science behind it; I’m not a scientist. From my standpoint as a producer, I’m concerned that, with genetic modification, consumers could easily feel that their pristine apple suddenly has a component that they’re not confident in.”
