Tomato is first CRISPR-edited food to go on sale in the world

CRISPR-enabled tomatoes are now available in Japan through Sanatech Seed
CRISPR gene editing is now available for the first time. This applies to Japan where the Sicilian Rouge High-GABA tomato just went on sale.

Minako Sumiyoshi, a Japanese start-up Sanatech Seed says that we started shipping tomatoes in September 17. They are now selling tomatoes directly to customers. She said that there is not a lot of demand for tomatoes.

This is a significant milestone in CRISPR food research,
