      Gee, that’s strange.  I received a package of seeds from China also, I planted them, but my results were vastly different . . .

    DISCLAIMER: to be fair, I have to say that this photo was taken a few months after harvesting.  (Cough, cough.)

    "A spokesperson for the USDA said the department is urging anyone who receives the packages not to plant them and to contact their state plant regulatory official and keep the seeds and packaging, including the mailing label, until they receive further instruction.
     

    "At this time, we don’t have any evidence indicating this is something other than a 'brushing scam' where people receive unsolicited items from a seller who then posts false customer reviews to boost sales," the statement said. "USDA is currently collecting seed packages from recipients and will test their contents and determine if they contain anything that could be of concern to U.S. agriculture or the environment."

    That thing looks like one of those 'Stinking Corpse'  plants.
