 I'm afraid I don't have any mystery seeds in the queue this week.

If you'd like to polish your seed identification skills while you wait, try some of these online seed identification resources:

The University of Kentucky has seed identification information and quizzes that use common names. They are both educational and entertaining.

If you know your plants by their scientific names, you might find these quizzes at Ohio State University interesting:

Check out this free .pdf 4-H seed identification fact sheet - it is very well done.

Finally, if you are a serious student of seed identification, try the USDA-ARS guide to seeds and fruit by plant family.

Enjoy!

Do you have any seed identification resources to suggest?

 These seeds come from a plant that is rarely grown from seed,

Do you recognize what kind of plant these seeds are from? If you choose to, please leave a comment with your ideas.

Mystery Seed answers and new Mystery Seeds are posted on Tuesdays.
