Is anyone growing Baby Fordhook Lima Beans?

aftermidnight Zone7b B.C. CanadaSeptember 30, 2012

Looking for a source to buy or if anyone is growing to share a few seeds. The commercial sources I've looked at aren't carrying them anymore. This seems to be yet another variety heading towards extinction. Any help in locating this bean that is Baby Fordhook Limas NOT Fordhook 242 will be very much appreciated.

an internet search using "baby fordhook limas" as the search phrase -- without the quotes --turned up several sources.

Thanks Jean, I've done that but all the sites I've looked at say they don't have them, even one that said they did, didn't.
