Shelf Life of Fenugreek Seeds?

What is a decent life expectancy on the seeds, mine are in a jar but I've had them quite a long time and I want to make sure they aren't stale?

They seem to last for ages whole. Perhaps, if you ground a few & see if there is any aroma it might give you an idea.

Thanks Pauly, I figured they would last longer than some of the other seeds do. I will do as you suggest, thanks for the reply.

Depends on how they are stored, air tight, low temp they should last for many years depending on the original quality.
