Hello veggie gardeners! I started a thread on the heirloom veggie forum and it was suggested to me that I bring it here, where more folks might have good input for me, as well as be made aware of this problem of folks who sell seeds misrepresenting and catching people unawares. In a nutshell I bought some seeds from EdenBros.com that were listed as heirlooms but in fact were not. I've quoted EdenBros response to me there. Rather than go into the whole spiel again, I ask that you look at http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1250374/. There is a link there to the watchdog report I made on this seller as well.
When I attempted to research "Golden Beauty" corn, I discovered that there is both an heirloom variety and a later introduced commercial hybrid by the same name. I have no idea which of these EdenBros sold me.
They also sold me "Crimson Sweet" Watermelon (http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/60071/) as an heirloom, which does not set seed.
