The packets have more seed than other companies too. I called the owner to thank him for the fast service. He bought the company three years ago and really strives for excellent service. (In my opinion, he achieved it.) On January 29th, 2019, theknizzler changed the rating from positive to negative and added the following:

Their prices still appear to be good but any cost for inferior seed is expensive. Last July I ordered 1 oz. each: Cucuzzi gourd, White Ribbed chard and Blue Curled kale. Germination tests gave 0%, 6% and 18% respectively. I kept testing the gourd until exhaustion of the whole ounce with no single plant. All the other 2 were planted and the few kale that emerged didn’t survive while the chard produced about enough for a window box. When I asked for replacements, all I got was arguments.

118 YEARS OF QUALITY SEEDS Since 1900, when D.V. Burrell first opened this store, farmers and gardeners alike have enjoyed shopping here. The Burrell seed legacy began with the now famous Rocky Ford cantaloupe, but continues with a wide selection of heirlooms, open pollinated and hybrid varieties. Our passion for growing and maintaining the biodiversity of the region never waivers. Wandering the fields and watching them grow gives us as much pleasure as helping you grow your own crops. We are here to help all growers, large and small. FAST, FRIENDLY SERVICE Always happy to hear from our customers, you can order by phone, mail or on our easy to navigate website. We strive to ship orders by 1:00 p.m. MST the same day. After 1:00, it will ship the next day. Most orders, one pound or more, are shipped out priority mail. Should you need it shipped with another carrier, please let us know.

GENEROUS SEED PACKETS We recently had a phone call inquiring if we were the company with twice as much seed in our packets. In most cases, we definitely are. Our scoop sizes catered to large farming families 118 years ago and contain the same amount today. The majority of our corn, bean and pea packets contain 1/4 cup or 1/3 cup of seeds! NEW SEED CROPS This year brought in some very nice seed crops. Our beloved zinnia crops still brighten the fields as they have for over 100 years. Sweet Spanish Colorado 6 onion, nearly gone from the marketplace, produced a fine crop of seeds. This heirloom is one of the best open pollinated yellow onions out there. Pictured on the back cover, our seed produces large, uniform onions with good storage capability and great flavor. J. Moran,

probably the most popular tomato in the Arkansas River Valley for decades is available again, in limited quantities. Dixie Lee watermelon, one of the sweetest, richest flavored and deep red colored watermelons we have ever tasted is a new seed offering this year.
