Nowadays, it is easy for us to enjoy seedless grapes. How do we grow them? Seedless grapes are not genetically modified. Rather, we make them through plant breeding. Plant breeding is a process where we manipulate plant species purposefully. We use a special growth hormone called gibberellin to remove the seeds. If we artificially produce this hormone on both sides of the stamen and pistil before the grapes pollinate, they will grow without seeds.
