I am trying to locate balsam pear seed. It is also called bitter melon. Do you have packets of these seeds or know a source for them?

Bitter melon is Momordica charantia, an Oriental vine crop. The variety 'High Moon' produces a pale green to white, warty melon, 6"-10" long and shaped like a cucumber. You'll find seeds in the current catalog from Territorial Seeds, PO Box 157, Cottage Grove, OR 97424. Phone (541) 942-9547.
