is this seed ok to trade?

thahalibut(Z-9 CA, SSZ-9)September 10, 2009

I want to do some trading & harvested some seeds today & was wondering if someone got these would they be happy or disappointed. Most look good but many look blank as you can see. I cant separate any more, they are too small. Would you trade something like these or not?

Yes, they're fine. If you're worried about the 'blanks', just put a little more seed per packet than you normally would. I'd be happy with those seeds!

Yes I planned to put in extra to compensate for blanks & such. I appreciate your opinion!
Thank you!

I'm curious, just what is the seed? I am not familiar with one that looks like that.

That's so very sweet of you! Wish I could take you up on the offer, but I already have them--they're one of my all-time favorites.

Hi,
Just so you know most of what you see as blanks are not seeds at all. It is chaff. Those chaff parts were what was once the flower petals. Anyway, most people let the other trader know it is seeds with chaff included so there's no confusion. : )
