Don't plant these: Packages of mystery seeds arriving in Minnesota mailboxes


Minnesota Department of Agriculture

Minnesota residents are receiving unsolicited packages of seeds in the mail. They appear to have come from China or Kyrgyzstan.

Scores of Minnesotans are receiving packages of seeds in the mail, but they didn't order them.

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture said it is not sure what the seeds are and requests anybody who gets a package of the unsolicited seeds not to plant them.

"We're uncertain what these seeds may be and why people are receiving these unsolicited packages," said Denise Thiede, the department's seed unit supervisor. "Until we know more, we encourage people to contact us because of the risk they may pose to Minnesota agriculture and our natural landscapes."
