Wanted:Malabar Spinach and Cluster Bean Seeds

ganesh108March 17, 2006

I am new to gardenweb and I am looking for Malabar spinach and Cluster bean(gawar) seeds. I can't find it at the local garden stores or Asian supermarkets. I don't have a lot for trade but I do have 4 different varieties of tomato seeds and 3 different kinds of peppers. If anyone has these seeds and are willing to trade please e-mail me.

Hi, I have them. I sent most of my seeds to someone in California, but I could send you a few from the ones I kept. I think one of my plants is going to seed too, but I'm not sure how it works with these plants. This was my first year with them. I hope I will eventually get seeds from the plant. I am also rooting some cuttings to grow from this coming year.

The type I have is the alba type with green stems.

I would be happy to get tomato or pepper seeds. If I get tomato, it should be a smaller type because it gets so hot here in the summer, I can't grow the large ones.

I haven't done a trade on here before so I'm not sure how it works. I also have a Ferry Morse edamame to trade if anyone is interested in that.

I want a few seeds to experiment planting and see if it grows in my backyard, mainly and solely for cooking as a vegetable for dinner. I do not need many, but just a few seeds may be 8-10. If anyone can share, I will appreciated it very much. i live in California's dry, hot, arid (not humid) area. I like to try and see if it grows here!
