Anyone know who is selling them for 2015? Park's Seed doesn't have them listed in new 2015 catalog or online. Sighing! Sighing!
Have looked online and found a pkt. of 20 seeds. I want at least 1/2 lb.
Thank You!

Generally speaking, specific seeds can be hard to find at this time of year. Companies sell out of things for the year. The fresh seeds harvested this year generally come available from commercial sites after January.

I'm not much of a veggie grower, but others here are, and might offer some suggestions.

Park Seed now has packages of 100 seeds (~2oz) available for approx the same price, proportionately, as 8 oz would be.

Thank you Linda. I tip my hat to you. Their 2015 catalog has already come & they weren't shown. Have sent an inquiry abt. larger amount. I used to get both Kwinthus and Smeraldo from them.

Linda, if you want to grow them on a larger scale and can't find them this year, you can always increase the seed yourself by growing and harvesting the seed.

Thank you Sandy, I have a bucket of pods saved, but the pods are tough to open.

Linda, I've grown some beans like that too -- while others practically jump out of the pods. Smiling
