To fruitlovers,  I sent all the information you requested to both of your email addresses.  You can refund me through PayPal.  Thank you.
Refund who? You want to give me your real name?

I purchased Vittelaria paradoxa from Oscar Jaitt / Fruit's Lover. Probably the worst seller I ever dealled with. He shipped the seeds in normal courier which took more than two months to arrive. Seeds arrived totally roten. When you are a pro you know these species need to be planted fastly and cannot travel for a while (like clove, cocoa, etc..) Asked for refund, no news.

It seems to me that this is not a completely fair statement. I recently bought seeds from Oscar, additionally paid for express delivery, the purchase amount was more than 1 thousand dollars, so I asked Oscar to indicate in the declaration the amount of 200 dollars to avoid customs duties in Russia. The parcel arrived to me 18 days after being shipped from the USA. All seeds are in good condition. I think you yourself made a mistake by not paying for express delivery.

Hey guys just wanted to give u a heads up i spent 60 bucks on 9 seeds at farwell fruit farm and not a single one germinated and they dont really care. Also trade winds i had gotten a bunch of seeds i had better luck here but the pdm seeds not a single one germinated and they wont email back. Just wanted to let you guys know so u dont also get burnt. I have gotten plenty of seeds from marcos and close to 100% germination and hundreds of seeds from adam (flying fox fruits) also with close to 100% germination. Take it as you will just figured id give my peeps the warning.

I got 2 plinia yasuni and 7 salticola seeds not one popped. Its been about 2.5-3 months i figured 1 would pop by now. I contacted them got one response then never emailed me back after that. Trade winds never emailed me back at all about the bad batch of pdm seeds (6) i got, not to mention the grub that came in with the seeds i guess that should have been my sign. They both have lost my future buisness for sure.

Expereince with farwell farms this far.
Had satisfactory germiantion of porcelia nitidifolia and plina salticola from farwell farms. Garcinia macrophylla will take longer to germinate but seeds look healthy when scratched.
It was easy to communicate with them and it's great that they offer DHL. Very good experience.

Experience with trade winds seeds this far.
Nothing arrived. Maybe it's beause the packge will have the keyword "seeds" on it. Even allowable import gets destoryed sometimes when handled by underpaied custom workers. Would be better if they offered DHL.

Experience with rare palm seeds online this far.
Nothing germinated (could be me or could be the seeds, will see once i get same species again), took a loooooong time to get here and support was non existant for months, strange legal ordering system, pobobly to make it hard for custopmer to get refund. Hopefully they can improve communication and quality.

Experience with seeds del mundo this far.
Nothing arrived. Maybe it's beause the packge will have the keyword "seeds" on it. Even allowable import gets destoryed sometimes when handled by underpaied custom workers. Would be better if they offered DHL.

Experience with sunshineseeds this far.
Not the best germination but I where happy to get something to germiante since they are from Germany, fast shipping, good package, had some seeds germinate
I didn't expect super fresh seeds like from a grower or local and with that in mind I was happy with my purchuase anyway. Looked at the list, "new listing" as these would hopefully be the freshest.

My experience with different sellers on etsy this far.
Low quality seeds or very old seeds, probobly won't use etsy again for this purpose.

My experience with different sellers on ebay this far.
A lot better then etsy. But still patchy seed quality. Ofcourse depends a lot on seller. Good to have some buyer protection.

I just want to contribute, I've purchased from Farwell a handful of times, out of five times I had a good experience four of the times.

The time that I received bad seeds, they were absolutely and completely horrific trash garbage. Think microwaved jabo seeds.

When I contacted them, they were able to refund the purchase and take care of me; I can't speak for everyone but I was pleased. The overall germination (of the good seeds) has been very high, and overall I've been pleased.

Each order I made was approximately $150.

I tried Farwell once, seeds came in baggies with no medium to keep them humid. Germination was decent, maybe half came up. I planted 5 sabara seeds in one pot for example, 2 came up. I don't think I'll buy there again. FLNative has the freshest seeds I've found.
