    All you can tell from looking at those seeds is that they are likely a brassica of some kind.  Impossible to say more until you grow them.  For all you know, they could be rapeseed.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • any comments?

    If it wasn't from a legitimate outlet, like a specialist veg grower, and was just from a random person, it could be anything. There are all sorts of bogus seeds imported from China unfortunately. 
    As @BobTheGardener says - the only way to find out is to sow them.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....



    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • I'll sow them in little pots..... Just to see...
