Seeds produced in the last 6 months by sustainable methods (no added chemical fertilizers and zero pesticides!). These are the same seeds I will be planting in my own garden this coming growing season.
I observed the plants to be vigorous growers and the flowers have a mild taste. They dress up your salad and make for a beautiful garnish on other plates; so easy to add when you pick them fresh from your own yard! Vines grow 6-10 feet so provide a location for them to do some climbing but they're not unruly. Mine typically flower best at the end of my subtropical summer but continue to produce throughout my mild winter (I would expect them to do well in a temperate summer climate). They are VERY easy to grow and will liven up any landscape, even if you don't want to eat the flowers.
The "fruit" (pods) may be edible when VERY tender, but I have no experience eating them. They seem to toughen quickly, but I've heard anecdotally that they be edible. I wouldn't recommend it, though.
Germination rate should be very high (>75-85% or better). Moderate to full sun is best in an area with well drained soil
Seed quantity will be 1 tsp (roughly 35 seeds, give or take). If you're interested in a larger quantity, please message me!
Every effort is made to ship within 2 business day of your purchase. In many cases, the cost of shipping up to 6 half-pint jars is very similar to the cost of shipping just one jar. Jams and fresh mangoes are usually shipped via Priority Mail, and other items via First Class. If you have other needs, contact me and I'll be happy to adjust pricing accordingly.
Consider making the most of your shipping fees and ordering more than one jar or having a friend purchase a jar or two and split the shipping!
Jars will be individually wrapped then boxed before shipping to you.
Other payment methods can be possible, but message me to discuss your needs.

Additional return information
No returns/refunds unless product was broken in transit or defective upon opening of jar (and is opened within one year of the date it was canned).
Jams and preserves are all water bath canned and are safe for up to one year from the date they were canned (based on pH and heat treatment). This date (month/year) is written on the jar lid once the jar is cool enough for me to handle.
Custom orders are welcome, but please convo me to discuss available ingredients and other special requests (vegan sugar, pectin-free, etc.). I prefer using seasonal and local ingredients whenever possible.
