    Great seeds
    After having ordered seeds from another company and getting a 02% germination rate, I was thrilled with the 94% germination rate of neseed’s luffa. Emergence in five days, hardly typical for luffa from what I have read, and first true leaf at ten days.I will be coming back to neseed for all of my future seed needs!
