Anybody grow these? I've been growing them the last few years, but I can't seem to find a seed source for them this year. We didn't hardly save any seeds at all last year because of our move. I just tracked down the last few other items I couldn't find at my usual seed source. Could somebody spare some seed if y'all got em? thanks

Try Baker Creek. I think that's where I purchased mine.

That's where I've always gotten them, but they "don't carry them anymore." I work about 15 minutes away from one of their big stores and it was a no-go.

Sorry I can't help you Will. I lost the stock when my goat broke into the garden and ate them down to the ground.......along with the strawberry plants, all the broccoli, one bite out of each turnip, most of the green beans, and all the beets. I discovered him before he got any further.

We have that variety in abundance here - but I don't think the USA will allow them to be shipped in from abroad...

At least it gives me hope that they're still out there somewhere. Perhaps I can still find them. Thanks!
