    I just planted it yesterday in my greenhouse. So I don’t know yet. I am trying the winged bean in there on a trellis. I was a bit disappointed with the seed swap on the zucchini. Eight ball i have had in the past and they grew too large too quickly. Mainly use zucchini for zoodles as I have a wheat allergy. Those won’t fit in my spiralizer. This is why I wanted the long caserta. An email would of been good for a heads up. Let me make another Choice then. The seeds of the pepino melon were almost non exsistant, only 5 in the parchment pouch. Wasn’t it suppose to be 10? I hope I got them where they were suppose to go as I needed a magnifying glass to see them. I am limited on my gardening now as I have spondylolithesis in my spine. I want the seeds I ordered. I guess pine tree isn’t as consistent as other seed companies. This is why I dropped you. Thought I’d give you another chance since I wasn’t planted a big garden and you carry the small seed packets. Also the bar code sticker on the back of some of the packets is a pain in the *** to get off and the packet was demolished by the time I worked it off. What is up with that?? E Raivo
