A nutmeg seed ready for planting and a nutmeg seed used to grind for cooking SHOULD look VERY different. In order to be usable for planting, a nutmeg seed should NOT be dried out and with all likelihood still have some mace on it. The seed that I received looked IDENTICAL to the nutmeg seeds I use for cooking. Dry, and most likely pulled out of a McCormick spice jar, this seed does not seem ripe for planting. Not impressed. To be EXTRA CERTAIN, I'm still going to attempt planting and germinating this seed, but I'm pretty darn certain that this seed is too dried and old for germination. What a shame and waste of money.

The seeds I received were not capable of germination, they were too dry and too old. Might as well have bought a pack of nutmeg from the spice aisle.
