I received the seeds promptly, and they are indeed growing, they are massive already! Thank you so much, I plan on using every part of the plant including the roots. Will dry the husk for tamales, the leaves and hair for tea and pickle the roots. As far as the kernals I will use some for Masa, and other things and the Cobb will also be used for tea.
It has come up well and is progressing nicely looking forward to that unusual color
The seeds came and they looked nice and healthy. I have not planted them yet, so I can’t comment any further. The delivery came in a timely manner.
