Mysterious Seeds From China

Warning. Chinese seed scam?

In Dianes Kitchen


We were watching the news Tuesday and they announced that China may be mailing mysterious seeds to random people in the USA and that the seeds may be invasive. Being an avid gardener I was sure to take notice. Ironically, Wednesday I received one of these random seeds packets in the mail. The bag it came in states it is jewelry, mine said one ring and I did not order this. The authorities ask that if you receive these seeds, DO NOT OPEN OR PLANT THEM. Click the link below to read what USA Today wrote about these mysterious seeds from China and what you should do if you receive them like I did.


These are what my seeds look like, however, they show different seeds in the USA Today article. I have no idea what kind of seeds these are, do you have any idea?

      1. This was probably a test. If we open one package, thinking we ordered it from China because SO MUCH comes from China, then they may believe other packages will be opened. This one the U.S. determined to be benign. But would that be the case again? You were so right in sharing this on your blog to get the word out! And how brave you were to check into the contents to begin with! 💖
