Something Blue

You can buy a lot of different things on Amazon. Even several things that don't actually exist. A blue variety of strawberries for example. These are offered by Treasures by Lee and Plantgrabber offers seeds for an equally mythical black variety.

You can also buy seeds for equally non-existent bright blue roses (Home Grown) and peonies (Big Bargain).

Offering seeds is smart. the buyers cannot know immediately that they are conned.  And if the seeds do not sprout they may never catch on.

Amazon continues to approve reviews that point out these sellers are perpetrating a transparent scam--and continues to let them do so.
