Report: Mysterious Seed Packets Arriving in U.S.

Successful Farming reports a curious case of unsolicited gifts arriving in American mailboxes in recent weeks. People in at least seven states have received packages containing seeds. The packages are often labeled as jewelry and have Chinese writing on the outside, according to the article. (The photo above was posted on Twitter by the Kansas Department of Agriculture.)

Ag officials are asking Americans not to plant the seeds. There’s some fear they could introduce diseases or local plant life or simply be invasive species.
