Hi Chokri, I checked out your article and I just wanted to mention, I would really not recommend Amazon for purchasing seeds. Most of the seeds on Amazon are duds or scams. Following your link here are the results I see:



As you can see, 3 of the 5 results that are actually seeds are obvious scams. There is no "strawberry with kiwi inside" fruit and no bright purple kiwi that I'm aware of. That leaves two that might be selling what they're advertising. The first seller, bjduck99 sells a lot of generic items over a wide variety of categories, and is also selling some obvious fake seeds (another "strawberry kiwi"). This usually means they are drop-shipping products from somewhere else, probably AliExpress. Seeds from AliExpress are almost always scams. The final seller is Rob's Rare and Giant Seeds, who you can find reviews for here. Overall I would recommend that people get their seeds from a reputable seller in-person or with their own website, if they are going to buy them.

Definitely! I almost ordered some seeds from Amazon (not kiwi) a while back and saw advertising for clearly photoshopped, non-existent plants. They send whatever seed they have, and by the time you discover it's completely different from what you ordered, it's too late to make a claim, or they've started a different account.

I find Etsy to be a better bet. I've had very good luck working with highly rated sellers there. Again, not kiwi seeds.
