A Question About Fruit

OK, here's one to ponder... How do they make seedless oranges? Don't you have to plant a SEED to grow a new orange tree? Where do the seeds come from if not from the actual orange? Is each seedless orange the end of its "orange lineage?" I am perplexed...

I hava also given this a good amount of thought, and while I enjoy a juicy seedless orange, I think that genetically altering food may lead to the downfall of the human race!

Yes, but as the mother of a three-and-a-half-year-old, I can say with great certainty -- seedless fruit is great!
