Organic Seeds per Gram

Seeds per gram, ounce and pound. 

We get many questions about "how many seeds in a package".  While many are listed on the individual variety pages, some may not have been included, so we offer these as a guideline. 

Please note these numbers are approximations - each variety will be different and we are constantly updating this chart.

We have tried to include most of the commonly asked "how many seeds per" below.  The following formula's were used to come up with the Ounce and Pound numbers.

Grams to Ounces multiply by 28.3495, Grams to Pounds multiply by 453.592.
