Best Japanese vegetable seeds

sakura2006January 6, 2008

I'd like to know where can I buy best Japanese vegetable seeds?

I know Sakata seed company in Japan but I live in U.S.A and Sakata seed company doesn't send seed to people who live in America.

I only interested to buy seed from Japan.

If you are willing to acept Japanese varieties which have been grown in the U.S. then try
or try
They are not produced in Japan, but I didn't find most of what they offer anywhere else.

Sakata Seed is a big wholesale company now, I think. And the two companies above are likely to get seed from them, and from other wholesale sources. I don't believe all the seed the companies above sell is grown in the U.S.

I have been happy with the service from Evergreen Seeds. Try the Extra Summer Sweet melon.

I will second the recommendation for Kitazawa, they carry good seed & are expanding their selection.

Baker Creek Heirloom Seed carries quite a large selection of Asian vegetables as well, including several Japanese squash.

If you are searching for edamame soybeans, I have quite a few Japanese cultivars (including "Tengamine" and "Sapporo Midori" from Sakata). Additionally, I have seed for cucumbers, bitter melon, and peppers from Japan. Contact me through my Member Page if interested.

I am sorry for not thanking earlier for taking your time to reply everybody.
Yes, Kitazawa, Evergreen, and Baker Greek Heirloom are good companies.
What is your opinion on Burpee seeds company in Pennsylvania?
