Unfortunately our seeds were damaged in storage, so the seeds that we are offering this year are from NESeed and not grown by us. The seeds are treated with thiram fungicide by the seed producer, so please wash your hands after handling the seeds. Thiram is commonly used to prevent damping-off caused by various soilborne fungi by non-organic seed producers. Germination is 85%.
