For the first time ever, we have enough fresh neem seeds from Senegal to sell them!

And this second batch has been certified as fresh and viable by the Senegalese government, which is working to promote neem as an industry. We got great germination on the first batch though. Along with the seeds that popped up as expected in 15 to 20 days, we’re still seeing little baby neem seeds poking their heads out of the soil after nearly five weeks. (Look carefully at the bottom of the photo and you can see them.)

We’re not sure on an exact date when they will arrive but we like to sell them in advance so we can ship them the day we get our hands on them.

Proceeds from the sale of these seeds will benefit the Senegal Neem Foundation, which is working with the government to help create a neem industry in Africa. As neem gets more and more popular, supplies in India are stretched thin, so we all benefit with new sources of neem.

These neem seeds are visibly better plants than what we’ve grown before — seeds we planted in December could easily be confused with other seedlings that were planted last July.

Neem trees growing in the Sahara Desert seem to be tougher than the well-cared-for trees in Mexico and India.

That’s probably because they came from trees that are growing in the Sahara Desert where they’ve been considered a “weed tree” until recently. The Mexican trees where our neem seeds had been coming from are carefully cultivated, and Indian trees are so valuable that it’s illegal to export viable seeds. The photo shows neem trees growing in Senegal — they have to be tough to handle that kind of sandy soil and no rain!

These neem seeds will ship from Florida so you don’t have to wait on an overseas package, but they do need to be sold quickly. They’re only viable for about 30 days after they’re harvested so they need to be in the ground ASAP.

Please read growing directions ( before the seeds arrive so that you’re ready for them when they get there.

    Neem tree farms is excellent company for live plants & seeds. Vicki is very helpful either on phone or by email. I got neem seeds from neem tree farms & these are growing pretty quick. I was thinking it will take a month or more but these seeds started growing in a week. I am so surprised seeing them growing. I got seed from eBay, different states in USA but I was never successful, thanks Vicki providing us extremely good seeds!

    We always had good experience with the Neem tree farm. we received the seeds within three days (across the US) in small amount of potting soil mixed (small Ziploc bag) in nice cushioned packaging. I didn’t count but probably about 25 seeds. planted in couple of days. sprouting already (seeing cracks on the soil) in a week time. I was worried with all the fires (bad air quality) going around. but temp at 90+ degree seem helped. Actually, I was waiting for “neem sprouts special” but saw these seeds and bought them right away. seem like a good bargain.

    Planted the seeds the day after they arrived. I live in the Bay area in California and have experienced an excellent germination rate. The seeds have sprouted within 7-10 days. I received 29 seeds and eleven have sprouted. Every day I am seeing one or two new sprouts and am sure in the end I will have a germination rate of around 80-90%. With Neem it is important to have fresh seeds and sow them ASAP in order to get good germination rate. Excellent seed quality. Thanks.

    bought the seeds on August 14th and planted them the same day. There were about 25 seeds in the bag, and now I have 20 4-5 inch plants. The folks at Neem Tree Farms are super easy to work with, and are very friendly and helpful.

    • Vicki

      Please give them at least two weeks in the ground and then contact us. We’re getting more seeds soon.

  10. Srilatha

    Thank you, will keep you updated, right now there are five seeds with tiny sprouts as of July 3rd, hopefully other will sprout soon

  11. hirisave Ramchandra

    I got 50 seeds on Aug 2, 2021. I planted on same day per instructions Not a single seed has sprouted as of as 09 Aug 16, 2021. I will watch another week if they sprout.

    • Vicki

      Please keep an eye on them, it’s not unheard of them to start germinating weeks after they’ve been planted. Please let us know how they look in two more weeks, we can refund your money or replace the seeds with what we’re harvesting at our farm now.

  12. hirisave Ramchandra

    OK. I will watch for next two weeks. On Aug 30 it will be 28 days or 4 weeks. I will let you know on that day. In case they do not sprout I will greatly appreciate if you replace seeds with what you will be harvesting now as you replied.

  13. hirisave Ramchandra

    As I said before I am letting you know that after 4 weeks of planting not a single seed sprouted. Apparently they were old seeds. Please provide me with seeds of this years harvest from your farms as you yourself suggested. thanks. Please do reply.

    I ordered 20 seeds in the last week of July 2021, I received my package in the first week of August. I was pleasantly surprised to find more than 30 seeds. The seeds looked dry, based on my limited knowledge only fresh seeds are viable. Still I went ahead and sowed them immediately. Its been about 45 days and none of the seeds germinated even though I kept my seed container in small DIY greenhouse. I would like to give a try one more time as I have got lot of positive feedback from my gardening community. Please let me know when the fresh seeds are available.

      Hi Sandy,
      We still have a few seeds from the trees here, we’ll drop them in the mail on Monday. They were fresh when they left here, we promise, but something must happen with shipping to some packages. Thanks for trusting us again!
