Keeping the world safe for miso soup and Brazilian beans, arctic seed vault welcomes new treasures
Date:2/25/2014

e exchange has sent a variety of red okra that was given to it by a woman from Tennessee via her father-in-law, who said the seed was passed down through generations of Cherokee. The Seed Savers shipment also included "Rox Orange" sorghum, a variety that was developed in the first half of the 20th century specifically for making syrup. And it contributed a variety of cherry tomato called "Unger's Hungarian" because the person after whom it is named brought it to the US when he emigrated from Hungary.

Finally, from Brazil's Embrapa come 514 samples of what is simply known as "the common bean" but which plays an uncommonly prominent role in Brazilian cooking and culture. In much of Brazil, feijo preto, or black beans, are eaten with virtually every meal and are the crucial ingredient in Feijoada, a stew of beans and pork many consider to be Brazil's national dish.

"Each and every single deposit into the vault provides an option for the future," said Haga. "At a time of unprecedented demands on our natural environment, it is critical to conserve plant genetic resources for food and agriculture. This will guarantee farmers and plant breeders continued access to the raw materials they need to improve and adapt crops. Conserving crop diversity guarantees that the foundation of our agriculture is secure for the future. Drawing on a global coalition of governments and private donors, the Crop Trust is building an Endowment Fund, which will safeguard the diversity of the major food crops of the world in genebanks when complete."
