WANTED: Asian beans

zeedman Zone 5 WisconsinJuly 27, 2007

I am a collector & dedicated seed saver, seeking seed for Asian beans, including the following:

- Soybean (Glycine max)

- Adzuki (Vigna angularis)

- Black gram (Vigna mungo)

- Green gram (Vigna radiata)

- Cowpeas (Vigna unguiculata)

- Yardlongs/Asparagus beans/Long beans (Vigna unguiculata, subspecies: sesquipedalis)

- Other edible legumes of Asian origin that might succeed in my Midwest climate

I am interested in _named cultivars_ of Asian origin, seed from Asian seed companies outside the U.S., or heirlooms brought here from Asia. If the variety is rare or unusual, that is a plus. If you have grown the variety yourself, that is also a plus, since that means I am more likely to be successful with it.

I am _not_ seeking:

- Hybrid varieties

- Patented or genetically-modified varieties

- Generic "mung", "adzuki", etc., or seed sold in bulk for human consumption.

Any varieties that I am able to grow successfully will be offered to others through Gardenweb, the Seed Savers Exchange, and my local Asian community. Please review my Exchange Page for seeds that I offer in trade. Thank you.
