Caution: Some of their seeds are not true to name!
First time dealing with this company. I grew some Amish Paste Tomato plants using seeds from Sow True Seed and what I got are flat big slicing tomatoes, nothing like the paste tomatoes Amish is supposed to be. I emailed them and was told that I am not the only one who complained about their Amish Tomato Seeds. They never offered an apology. My hope of Amish Paste Tomatoes was ruined by their FAKE seeds. Another variety of fake seeds is the "WINTER SQUASH - TAHITIAN BUTTERNUT". Their website used to show some pictures nothing like a TRUE Tahitian Butternut Squash. Just checked they added some pictures resembling the true Tahitian squash but the pictures of FAKE TAHITIAN SQUASH are still displayed at their website. I guess they don't really know what a true Tahitian Squash looks like, so they displayed a mixture of fake and true Tahitian pictures ([[email protected]]). I'll report back about other varieties later of the season.
I ordered seed potato of a variety that is difficult to find well ahead of time and it showed in stock. When my potatoes arrived they had substituted another kind. That is like ordering shoes on line and the company deciding to send you something else if they don't have it...or ordering from an online grocery store and getting a substitution instead of what you ordered. This is not acceptable to me! They didn't even try to contact me to ask...just sent it. How can I trust them with a future order?
