I was cautious, first time order, wanted to go cheap so ordered 10 big bud, got 5 white widow free. About 40 bucks US. Used a credit card, and got super fast shipping, great communication. The packaging was so stealth at first I thought I got ripped off. I contacted MSNL, they told me where to look. When I did, the beans were right there. Seems legit, go for it. I have no information about germination as I have not done that yet. I would use them again. Hope this helps those looking for a legit seed bank.
