Welcome to NGA, @imamainegirl !

I'm assuming you mean the "Alaska Hybrid" variety? or... maybe just a short-season variety?

I wasn't able to find a source for "Alaska," but Johnny's Selected Seeds ( ) offers a number of short-season types, including "Halona," which I am trying this year. (Unfortunately, varieties frequently come and go from the seed catalogs...)
