It turns out people have been planting (and eating) the mystery seeds from China

Just when we thought the “mystery seeds” story had died down, Motherboard has provided a comprehensive update on what, exactly, people have been doing with the unsolicited seed packets they’ve received from China. Having filed dozens of FOIA requests with every state’s department of agriculture and with the USDA and its various labs, Motherboard editor Jason Koebler reveals that, despite the many warnings from the government not to plant the seeds (for fear of invasive species and fungi contaminating our native crops), hundreds of people did so anyway—while others straight up ate the seeds.
