*Just moved, my collection is small & not all of it is listed yet.*

I'll trade any of the bean seeds I have a lot of for SABSE if you want -- or SASE if you're daring and want few seeds. If you hand-sort the regular envelope and wrap the seeds in a cardboard hotdog or bubble wrap, it might be fine, someone traded seeds to me in a cardboard hotdog like this and they were fine.

I also have other more common ones I'll trade if you want, commercial for eating, but I've grown these kinds of beans since I was eight years old and never ever had a problem with them sprouting, they always grow. (Black Turtle, Roman/Cranberry, Great Northern, etc).

I live in a highly international area and can also buy seeds and other things pretty easily from for example Korean stores.

I am also willing to do trades for other goods and services. I can do some crafts (fancy soap, painting and embedding objects in the middle of soap, sewing, painting fabric or anything, some types of jewelry, embroidery, etc), baking, Hungarian translation, illustration, webdesign, etc... ask!

Cajanus Species
Cajanus cajan

Commercial (food). I need to test the germination. These need a warm zone (8+? Dave's says 9-11) to be perennial, I think. May grow as an annual in summer otherwise??

Cicer arietinum
Commercial (food). I need to test the germination. Not a very dark color despite being labeled black, but much darker than a regular chickpea.

Pumpkin
Cucurbita maxima

Not yet ready for trade. Commercial pumpkin so maybe cross-pollinated. Seeds harvested from pumpkin that rotted... these grow from compost bins, right? I've got to wait for them to dry and then do a germination experiment. Pumpkin bought before Halloween 2015 and didn't rot until mid-March 2016! Very classy winter squash.

This pumpkin is a 'Flat White Boer' and it looks like a massive several pound large white patty pan squash, but in winter squash form. It does not look like the first picture in Dave's plant files of flat white boer, flat white boers are white and I'm not sure what's going on with that pumpkin (unripe??).

Trader Joe's sold a mixed lot of very unusual pumpkins in 2015 and I was so excited - I hadn't even seen this variety in a farm that specializes in over 50 kinds of unusual and heirloom squash, or...ever before anywhere.)

Butternut Squash
Cucurbita moschata

Farmer's market 2014. Really long butternut squash with a sweet flavor, can weigh 8 or 13 lbs, insane. Not as curved or as thin-necked as Pennsylvania Crookneck. However, the seeds may have cross-pollinated, the farmer also grew standard butternut squash.

Strawberry
Fragaria x Ananassa

I don't know what kinds I have, but they are not simply everbearing; both bloom and produce smallish to regular eating sized strawberries from spring until full cold winter, not even first frost, and one kind has PINK flowers and one kind has RED flowers. I am not sure if both last into frost as I grew them together. The pink one's flowers and crops look like 'Gasana' and it was sold as a potted plant.

(They are hardy but do not produce many runners, and I just moved, so I don't have extra yet.)

I can't figure out what the red one is. I've seen Tarpan look red in some pictures, and the plants do produce a pretty long thin type of shaped strawberry, and Tarpan does produce into fall while Tristan only into summer? Flowers are not bright red enough to be Ruby Ann.

(They are hardy but do not produce many runners, and I just moved, so I don't have extra yet.)

Fragaria x ananassa
Ordered White Carolina Pineberry (Hirt's Gardens, amazon website) but I don't think that's what I got, as the ones I have are NOT everbearing and the strawberries are tiny (thumbnail sized), not regular eating sized. WHITE strawberry with red seeds, big white flowers. No pineapple taste to me, but they do turn pinkish in the sun. (Not ready for trading yet, just moved. Waiting for transplant to produce runners.)

In any case, very prolific runners. This plant can actually easily become a nuisance, VERY prolific. The strawberries are tiny (about thumbnail sized) but good. Birds don't eat them so much because they don't turn red. Slugs still eat them.

Phaseolus Species
Phaseolus coccineus

These seeds are maybe a couple of years old and commercial - sold for cooking actually, I went to another state and found them in a specialty Italian store (PennMac if you're in Pittsburgh). I think Whole Foods sells them too in bulk, maybe, and there is one near me, I can check if anyone is interested. I've never had a problem growing old beans, and these grew fine in 2015.

Lima Bean
Phaseolus lunatus

I like "cow spots" beans similar to Jacob's Cattle. Ones that look like that, and ones that look "tabby cat" (striped - like these limas (this cultivar - 'zalŠn') and a non-lima, 'tarkabab - 'light speckled kidney bean' are common eating beans in Hungary, not to mention adorable and eye catching.

Dry Bean aka 1500 Year Old Cave Bean aka Aztec Bean

Looks similar to Jacob's Cattle / Trout beans.

This is the registered commercial for-food name of Aztec Beans aka 1500 Year Old Cave Beans aka New Mexico Cave Beans.

Dry Bean
Phaseolus vulgaris

Commercial (food). Tiny elongated white beans that look like grains of rice. "Rice Beans" exist as both Phaseolus vulgaris and Vigna umbellata. I *think* I have the Phaseolus vulgaris but I've seen someone use a picture like the beans I have to list Vigna umbellata seeds, even though they don't have the really long hilum that Vigna do.

100% germination out of about 10 seeds I tested! Some were much slower at sprouting than others, days slower, and have continued that by growing taller very slowly, too. The fast ones grew much faster than the Christmas Lima I germination trialed at the same time.

Saintpaulia
White single flower with a little bit thick in some places indigo rim, ruffled rim. Smooth leaf rim. Alabama was in production by Optimara when I bought this in 2016, and Chico was not.

Saintpaulia
Indigo/dark purple semi-double flower with a very thin white petal rim, slight ruffle. Undersides of leaves are maroon, the leaf tops show symmetrical large maroonish patches through the green. Maui was in production in 2016 when I bought this. Maui may be a too light purple.

Saintpaulia Species
Saintpaulia ionantha

I have an indigo one with a very thin white band around the petals (not quite ready for cuttings at this time), and one that is a light-medium pink but some of the flowers on it are almost white... it may be two plants very close together.

(I did not cut the leaves off to sprout them, but you can ask me to, at least for the pink-white.)

Saintpaulia ionantha
White single flowers with a pale green ruffled edge. Scalloped green leaves. I just got it from the grocery store, it is a mystery. Tentatively Optimara MySensation - or at least looks very close to it.

The plant was unmarked and not from a store listed with Optimara as currently carrying their violets (it's from Giant grocery store), though two stores near me are (Lowes and Harris Teeter), but this cultivar IS confirmed as being in production for retail from Optimara this year (2016).

(I did not cut any of the leaves off to sprout them, but you can ask me to.)

I have a deep bright pink fading to white one, and a bright neon red fading to white one.

Tradescantia
Tradescantia pallida

I'm not sure what cultivar I have, but it looks like purpurea so that's my best guess.

Vigna radiata
Asian vegetable. Commercial (food). I need to test germination. I *think* this one is Vigna radiata because it looks exactly like a red Mung bean, but I'm not sure. Just sold as "red beans".
