Looking for Jumbo Bush bean seeds

thisisme(az9b)January 24, 2011

I was hoping to pick up some Jumbo Bush bean seeds from Johnny's to do a comparison grow. The plan was to plant them on Feb 15th or soon there after as thats our last threat of frost. Johnny's is back ordered until March 1st. I've searched and can't find them for sale anywhere else. I don't want to lose those two weeks of growth. Does anyone here know where I could pick up 100 or so seeds?

I was planning on planting....

I checked the SSE yearbook and did not find a listing. I did find this:

Fisher's Seeds, PO Box 236, Belgrade MT 59714, (mailing address; store
street address is 20750 East Frontage Road) 406-388-6052 : this is a
small company, not online; Judy Fisher answers the phone, packs the
seed, and I think does a lot of the rest of the work; they buy some
seed but do a lot of their own seed production and seed breeding; they
have varieties for Montana and other short-season climates that are not
available elsewhere, and were for some time the only source of Jumbo
bush Italian bean...

Would this be the same as the Jumbo Roma Heritage Harvest Farms sells? They will send to the states.

Thank you both. Of the two sources though I think I would rather go with Fisher's Seeds because Canada Post takes forever.

With all the positive reviews I have read on this variety it makes me wonder why its not sold in more places. Is there still a patent on them that prevents them from being sold elsewhere?
