A group of students in Winnipeg, Canada have proved that ancient heirloom seeds are viable even if they have been buried for centuries. “There was an archeological dig on First Nations (Native) land in Wisconsin, and they found a clay vessel about the size of a tennis ball, and in that vessel they found seeds,” Brian Etkin, the coordinator of the Garden of Learning, told APTN News.
The seeds are of “Gete-okosomin,” a variety of squash that no one had ever seen or eaten. Gete-okosomin translates to “really cool old squash,” The Tribune reported.
