Information about our seeds: Most of our seeds come from traditional crops that farmers have cultivated for many years. These seeds are not GMO, do not chemically or biologically treated and are processed with minimal mechanization. Seeds are hand selected, prepared and packaged.

Information for planting:

Product Detail: Petiveria allicea wild seeds. Germination rate 85%. Purity 99%. Packet includes instructions for planting.

Growing requirements:

General Plant Information: Petiveria alliacea or Guinea Hen Weed is a flowering species native to United States, Mexico, Central America, the Carribean, and tropical South America. It is a herbaceous shrub that grows up to 1 m tall, with deep root system and small green flowers. The roots and leaves have pungent odor similar to that of garlic. There is no known edible use of this plant but it is a known medicinal plant for the treatment of fever, diarrhea, headaches, earaches, and other wide range of conditions. It has pain relieving, anti microbial, and anti inflammatory properties. The leaves can be used as an insecticide.

Guarantee: Seeds are living products that depend on many factors such as proper planting time and technique, depth of sowing, soil, proper germination environment, fertility, disease control, insect control, and reasonable weather for direct sown seeds. If any of these factors are not right, it may cause the seed to not perform and because most, if not all, of these are out of our control, most of the success of these seeds is in the hands of the grower. If they have been cared for properly and still fail to grow, we will replace the seed, one time.

A small study conducted in patients with osteoarthritis did not show benefit with P. alliaceae compared with placebo.8

P. alliaceaeis a perennial herbaceous or shrubby plant that grows 5 cm to 1.5 m in height.1, 2 The roots are fusiform, the stem is straight and rigid, and the branches are slender with longitudinal stripes. The simple leaves have an alternating phyllotaxy of elliptic and acuminate shape and an acute apex and base with a slightly wavy margin 7 to 12 cm long and 3 to 6 cm wide.2 P. alliaceae flowers are white, sessile, and bisexual with spikes or inflorescences. The cylindrical, achene-type fruits have longitudinal stripes and similar seed dimensions.1 The roots and leaves have a strong, garlic-like odor that taints the milk and meat of animals that graze on it.1

In analgesia experiments, 3 groups of rats (n = 7 per group) received P. alliaceaeextract (31.4 mg/kg body weight), acetylsalicylic acid (100 mg/kg body weight), or agar 1% (control group) orally.12 Evaluation consisted of ascertaining the ability of the rat to support pressure applied to the posterior paw using a Ugo Basile analgesimeter. The analgesia coefficient was calculated for 60, 120, and 180 minutes after treatment. Compared with the prototype drug acetylsalicylic acid, the analgesic effect of the P. alliaceae extract was less potent but more sustained.12


None well documented.

There are no data regarding toxicity in humans.

Dibenzyl trisulphide is a mitogen-activated protein extracellular regulated kinase 1 and 2 signal transduction molecule that exhibits antiproliferative activity on a wide variety of cell lines. Cytotoxic activity of dibenzyl trisulphide is increased when bound to albumin.13

In another study, short-term administration of an aqueous crude extract of P. alliaceae roots (500, 1,000, and 2,000 mg/kg orally) reduced the spontaneous locomotor activity of male Swiss mice on open field test.11
