My first experience was mixed. I put in a large order and many of the packets I received had been packed for previous seasons, some for two seasons earlier. Yes, they were well packaged, better packaged than most American seeds, but their useful life was limited by their packing dates. I e-mailed the owner and his e-mail response was defensive and off-point.

Italian seed companies package their seeds in hermetically sealed packages designed to prevent air and water infiltration. Because of that, they have much longer 'use by" dates than American seeds which are packaged in paper packs. This type of packaging is recognized by USDA which allows a three year 'use by" date as opposed to one year for paper packets. In fact, my seeds would always have a longer 'use by" date than any packet from an American seed company. I guarantee the germination rate on the packet.
