Hope everyone had a nice holiday. I just received these seeds in the mail today, are they viable? They seem dried out, arrived with what appear to be mold spores on them, and werenít packed in any medium, just a plastic zip lock type baggie with small holes poked into it. However, I have no idea if these seeds require medium or can be shipped dry? Any advice would be greatly appreciated on the condition of these seeds. Thank you.

They germinate very easily you should try. I have many volunteers under 3 trees after I just spit out the seeds.

You have nothing to lose trying to germinate them but peanut butter seeds
dry out fast and those are very dry. I would put some damp vermiculite in the
bag and see if they germinate. Usually within 2-3 weeks they germinate if they
are going to.

Thanks guys! Got them in some vermiculite. Seller was very cool and said they would issue refund/new seeds if they donít germinate, fingers crossed 🤞🏽
