What type of grass seeds are these?!Also germination time?

Glendale, AZ

I heard that they were Bermuda seeds but I'm not fully sure.

Also, if you may, please post the germination time!

Thank you!

What size are they?

Often seed (any sort) that is not its natural color has been treated in some way.
Perhaps a fungicide to help the seedlings resist diseases while they sprout.
Perhaps a pesticide, and this seed is intended to be used as bait to kill gophers.

They are about 1 cm. long in length.

I thought Bermuda grass seed was a lot smaller than that. Maybe Tall Fescue seed? That one is about a cm long.
Here is a link to a picture of Bermuda grass seed with a scale. See how the seeds are not even 5mm long? Maybe they are just 2mm long.

I think you can figure out germination time faster simply by sprouting some. Put several dozen in a cell pac or 4" pot and keep it moist, not soggy wet, and about room temperature. In a bright window would be good. Barely cover the seeds.

Alright, I will do some research about the tall fescue seeds.

Thank you.

And yes,it does look like my seeds look too big to be bermudas.
