I will pay for them, I do not have seeds to exchange, I will buy as much as you can sell, and pay thru Paypal or what method you like. I am from south India and I know this plant well.
Thank you very much.

the photos - that isn't spinach, but amaranth. It can be eaten like spinach. I think it must be FAR easier to grow than spinach, too.
