Chad, I do not have any seed since I grow modern hybrids, however golden bantam, country gentleman and stowells evergreen are available from Pinetree seeds at superseeds.com.They are good if you need small quanities and their S&H is reasonable. rhshumway.com has several varities. I have ordered from both companies and never had any problem. Vern

I am aware of those varieties. i was hoping to find some others that are not available in the mainstream catalogs.

Have you tried rareseeds.com? They might carry some. Or Landreth seeds I think they are called. Deal in heirloom varieties.

I will try those out. I am trying to find different heirloom vegetable seeds to grow and save.

Your best bet would be to find a local source, since the variety would be acclimated to your particular climate. Ed
