Mystery seeds as part of my Secret Santa - any ideas?

Any idea what these are? My work Secret Santa did me proud this year with Wonderberry and Melon Pear seeds!  Any suggestions?

    Going by the Chinese writing I'd make sure they're legitimate screened imports before opening the bag. Otherwise burn them.
  • No idea what they really are but don't be surprised if they aren't what they claim to be. Melon pear is a Chilean native also known as sweet cucumber. It is a member of the solanum family of plants - potato/tomato/deadly nightshade family. The wonderberry is also a solanum so treat them like tomatoes and see what you get.

    They look remarkably like small chipolatas to me ......... perhaps prepping Christmas dinner has got to me ..........? scared

    Lychee stones are that shape but a different colour.
    I share WE's concern about imported seeds.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    some of those 'could be anything' seeds, weeds native to the country of origin?

    Are you sure the other seeds you got are the real thing too, Innewhambo?  :/

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Hadn't crossed my mind, so I'll take that on board!

    yes, I think you can rely on those 2 companies :) 
  • I think I'll pop a couple into pots in the greenhouse and see what emerges!
