I recently ordered some chamaerops humilis (European/Mediterranean fan palm) seeds from the seller "jaysseeds" on Amazon (probably not the best place to order seeds but...) and ordered some trachycarpus fortunei seeds (windmill palm) from the same seller. After taking the seeds out of each pack, I notice the seeds look quite similar. They all looked like chamaerops humilis seeds. If I remember correctly, trachycarpus fortunei seeds almost look kidney-bean-shaped.

CLICK ON PICTURE TO SEE DETAIL Take a look at the attached picture and if anyone can tell me what kind of seeds they are please do... the chamaerops humilis is on the left and the trachycarpus fortunei is on the right.

Hi coleyamzn, Welcome!
I've proposed to move your post over to the Plant ID forum (rather than keep it here on the Plant & Seed Trading Forum) in hopes that one of our members can identify your seeds. I'm not familiar with either Mediterranean Fan Palm (Chamaerops humilis) or Windmill Palm (Trachycarpus fortunei) but those seeds in your photo sure look the same to my old eyes.
