    Great seed

    Posted by Becky on 28th Apr 2018

    One of my staples for my microgreen business. I have several restaurants buying kale every week and I always get the seed from Todd's. Very tasty mild microgreen and the seed germinates very well.

    Great Quality Product

    Posted by Rioch on 12th May 2017

    I started a Micro-green business last year and tested seeds from several sources. Todd's Seeds won hands down for germination and quality control. I had issues with intermixed seed varieties and weed seed from some of the other suppliers. Never had any issues with seed from Todd's Seed. Great quality control, excellent germination and best value I could find. Todd's has become and will continue to be my only seed provider.

    We purchase the Red Russian Kale seeds for micro-green production. They produce a consistently great product. We have purchased 100's of pounds of seeds from Todd's and have been 100% satisfied with them all. There has been great germination, great prices and over the top customer service.

    Healthy Eating

    Posted by Sharon on 9th Sep 2014

    We haven't eaten any yet as this will be our first season planting Red Russian Kale, but are looking forward to enjoying it. The more color the healthier for you. The best price I found on the internet also. The seeds are non GMO which is really important.
