Please keep in mind that postal delivery time can vary widely, in rare cases taking as long as 2-3 weeks. If you select standard shipping and your package hasn't arrived by three weeks, please contact us. We strongly recommend selecting priority or express shipping, particularly for short-viability seeds.

For international shipments to most countries, tracking numbers are only available with the express mail shipping option.

Tracking information is available for all shipments when within the United States. Tracking information is available on all shipments for destinations in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom. Please note that standard or priority shipping is done as-is, at the buyers risk. We cannot replace lost packages when shipped by standard or priority international mail.

We recommend choosing express or priority mail shipping for international orders when ordering short or limited viability tropical seeds. Seeds marked as short/limited viability or marked as plant immediately may have a limited shelf life. We will not be held liable for seed viability loss due to shipping times for international standard mail shipping. In addition, such seeds could be subject to stricter import regulations in certain countries.

Allow up to several weeks for international delivery to some countries. Local postal service speeds as well as customs clearance times can vary widely and are not always predictable.

2. Order by mail. We accept credit cards, international money orders in U.S. funds and U.S. cash for mail orders. Use our online mail order form, or write down your order and send it in to us at:

Shipping
There is a $10.00 minimum order for international destinations.
See the chart below for international shipping charges. We use regular U.S. Postal Service airmail for shipping. Please keep in mind that postal delivery time to international designations can vary widely. Typical in-transit times are 1-3 weeks to Western Europe, Canada and Mexico, and 2-6 weeks to anywhere else in the world.

Important Note: By placing an order, you are taking full responsibility for importation of seeds into your home country and releasing Trade Winds Fruit from any liability related to shipments in-transit. Some countries, e.g. Australia, have strict regulations on which seeds are allowed to be imported. It is up to the buyer to obtain any necessary permits or documentation necessary for importation. Trade Winds Fruit is not responsible and there are no refunds for any loss of seed due to importation difficulties. While we do not anticipate any reduced viability or quality, seeds to destinations outside of the United States are sold AS-IS.

Terms of Business

Trade Winds Fruit LLC is committed to providing our customers some of the most difficult to find and exotic seeds fresh from harvest. We do not store seeds for excessive amounts of time and will send limited-viability seeds undried. We periodically test our seed stock and can attest to germination as we cultivate many of the plants ourselves from our own seeds. We do not send old seeds, known non-viable seeds, nor substitute seed selections under any circumstance without your prior approval. Our seeds have excellent germination records and we are proud to maintain high standards in seed viability and selections. All seeds are for planting purposes only, and should not be consumed. We identify all plants and seeds to the absolute best of our abilities and take great care to make sure both species and varieties are sourced and identified correctly. However, some species are similar in appearance and nature, and Trade Winds Fruit does not make any guarantee or hold any liability if germinated seeds show production, genotypic, or phenotypic differences from parent sources. Many of our seeds, including vegetables, tomatoes, peppers, and others, are open-pollinated and as such, cross-pollination may sometimes occur. Therefore, resulting plants and/or fruits can occasionally show differences from parent plants and/or fruits. We offer no explicit warranty on any seeds but in most cases are happy to work with customers or provide replacements for seeds suspected of non-viability. Liability is always limited to the purchase price of the seeds only. In no event shall Trade Winds Fruit be liable for consequential damages, regardless of the nature, the cause, or the extent of loss. Your satisfaction is very important to us. Many tropical seeds have widely varying germination times. Please refer to our seed germination page for tips on germination and estimated germination times, or e-mail us with any further questions.

Trade Winds Fruit LLC shall not be held liable for any damages, either direct or consequential from the use of our seeds.
By placing an order you are agreeing to sale under these terms.
