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.
