I ordered Vigna caracalla (Corkscrew Vine) seeds from Onalee, and am very happy with the seeds. I got them quickly, they were well packed (with bubble wrap) and look good. She even threw in an extra. The seeds came with great starting/planting instructions with helpful tips. Communication with Onlaee was pleasant, she was very helpful.
The seeds were pretty pricey (over $2/seed), but after I ordered some on ebay a few weeks ago and the seller sent me Vigna phaseolus caracalla, I thought it best I spring for Corkscrew vine seeds from a reputable source.
I just started them today, so I can't comment on germination yet, but will follow up with another post.

Of the 6 seeds I received, only 2 sprouted. One shriveled up and died a week later, the other grew to be only 8" before it too died. Needless to say I'm not thrilled,,,On Nov 27, 2011, Onalee's Seeds, LLC responded with:
Hi - I'm sorry that you had poor luck with the seeds. If you would contact me directly, I will be happy to refund your purchase price or replace the seeds with something else. Just email me ... email@example.com and I'll be happy to work this out. I haven't received any emails from you about this issue ... I am sorry you didn't have better luck with the seeds."
Hello Gmack - I do not have any unanswered emails requesting information about an order that has not shipped. I do not have any orders pending shipment that have been paid for. Please email me again -because I have not received ANY emails from you regarding this issue. I need your order number or full name.
I assure you that I do respond promptly to emails and do replace lost orders. I ship orders out within 1 or 2 business days of receiving payment. I don't simply ignore emails . . . as you can see from the other reviews.
So, please either post here with your order number so I can contact you or email me again - firstname.lastname@example.org because I have not gotten your emails.

Actually, I found your order based on the name you used here - Order was placed on June 7th and mailed via First Class mail on June 9th. I would assume you would've gotten it by the 14th in Georgia.
I can re-ship it or send you a refund - whichever you prefer.
I have not, however, gotten any emails from you regarding not receiving the order. I went back and searched through ALL my email items and I don't have any emails from you other than the original order and payment and another order from 2009 on Ebay.
I will email you now to see if you want it re-shipped or refunded.
