US residents in all 50 states reported getting the unsolicited seed packages…
Via The New York Post:
An Arkansas man who received one of the mysterious seed packages sent to thousands of US residents from China planted them on his property — and said the results are wild.
“We … planted the seeds just to see what would happen,’’ Booneville resident Doyle Crenshawn told local CBS-TV affiliate KSFM.
The plant is producing large white fruit from orange flowers that resemble those of a squash.
“Every two weeks I’d come by and put Miracle-Gro on it, and they just started growing like crazy,’’ Crenshawn said.
