In an old Northern Gardener mag, they recommended Jubilation watermelon
Kestrel beets
Papaya Pear summer squash
Medalist cuc
Roc'dor' wax bean
Siam queen basil
Does anyone have these seeds or know of a source?
I check at every nursery and store, but can't find these.

Pine Tree Garden Seeds has some of those. I have ordered from them for 2 years and have been happy with their seeds.

RE: looking for some specific seeds

I got Siam Garden Thai Basil seeds at Whole Foods. I'll email you separately to see if you want some.

I planted regular basil, Thai basil, and purple basil this spring. They all look great, except that I harvested the purple basil seeds myself last fall and most of them (5/6) are coming up green. I should have known they wouldn't come true to type. An interesting genetics lesson.
