I placed an order with Trade Winds Fruit on July 11. After one month passed and I hadn't heard a thing from the company I began sending e-mails to the addresses listed on heir site. No response period. I can�t even tell if they are still in business.

The only reason I ordered from this company to start out with is that they stock many rare and hard to find seeds. A friend of mine ordered from them, and liked what he had gotten, but had said that they were tight with the amount of seeds they send, and that there is no specific mention of how many seeds you will receive. I ordered anyway because I only really needed a couple of each plant.

Purchased seeds online 12/21 via PayPal. Emailed for a followup on 01/10/06, 01/11/06 and 01/15/06 and never have had a response. A response to an email would be good customer service and I have not had a response. Filed claim with PayPal today to get my money back. Personally, I will not purchase from them again for the lack of service shown a customer.

Worked with PayPal to resolve. Within a few days an email from PayPal indicated the seller was shipping the seeds. They arrived yesterday 01/24. Can't vouch for viability but they did arrive. Still a negative experience because I had to followup with ZERO communication from the company. Not the way it should be.

TOOK MY MONEY AND NEVER FILLED MY ORDER! quick to take my money via paypal, never mailed my seeds. i emailed them 10-12 times over a period of 3 months and they never responded to any of them. they did not fill my order and did not refund my money. I will NEVER order from this company. They don't even have a phone number or customer service department. DO NOT ORDER from companies like this.

First order we for family out of the country got shipped in a fair amount of time, not quick, but not terrible. Though, many of the seeds did not germinate we were told.

NEVER AGAIN will I place an order with this company. I happily placed my order 17 DAYS AGO. My money was swiftly accepted, the very same day in fact, via Paypal. Their website states that orders will be processed in 5-7 working days. So after two weeks, I send them an e-mail. No response. Couple days later I send another e-mail. No response.

Promised Nicole to add this to my comments.
Received the seeds in very good condition, yesterday April the 13th
But Carlos in Brazil is still anxiously waiting for his seeds
My reply on Saturday 12:10 am at night
I ordered mine more than a month ago. You never answered my letters or emails. I could have rectified this a long time ago.
4 weeks ago Carlos asked me about his seeds which I had, together with mine, ordered before that date. I should have kept better notes, but was not expecting any of this.
and I did not need any special treatment, as you say. All it would have taken would have been communication. You only answered the first time because I said I would inform Dave's Garden Watchdog. and now you acted and send the seeds, because I actually did.
You asked for an additional $ 22.50 I send $ 23.-
Thanks for the order anyway.
I will post this letter on the watchdog just like this.
Will contact all my friends which have followed this over time

The seeds came in a timely manner, but the palms seeds I ordered were rotting from being uncleaned. The package was dripping ooze, and stinking upon arrival. I shrugged it off and cleaned the seeds, but found that all of one type were so old or moldy that they crumbled when touched.
