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:
- Basic Seed ID quiz
- Advanced Seed ID quiz
- You can also learn to recognize seeds from these extensive lists.
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.
Do you have any seed identification resources to suggest?
