Millennia, in fact.

I'd venture to guess that many (if not most) of the "naturally grown" foods consumed by the OP are hybrids, products of generation upon generation of cross-breeding and selection for desired/desirable traits and qualities. That banana Kirk Cameron likes to talk about, for example - it did not exist 100 years ago and would never have existed at all except for an extensive and deliberate cross-breeding program aimed at producing it.
The motto of the Corbettite Order seems to be Ite Animose... a Latin phrase that can be translated as "go courageously." Alternatively, it can be rendered as "boldly go," which bears a striking resemblance to a phrase heard during the opening credits of a certain popular television series.
