I'm planning an order to Tainong and/ or Kitazawa right now (Nov. 2011) ...
if someone is interested in something they have, let me know and maybe we can split a pak.
Your shipping cost would only be from me to you (like $2.75-$3), not $5-6 from Tainong.

I was thinking about getting some of these, mostly from Tainong (but not all ten Bok Choy varieties!):

Spinach Mustard Japanese Komatsuna OP
"Oriental Spinach Hybrid" (? Spinacia oleracea??)
Special Green Petiole Ching Chang OP - Big, bright green body. Tolerates high heat.
Dark Green Gailan "Chinese Kale" OP

Bok Choy 'Dong Zhi' - cool areas. Big size with heavy bulb base
Baby Bok Choy 'Mei Qing Choi' (Sakata Seed) - green stem, compact, extra early, good bolt resistance.
Baby Bok Choy 'Ching Chang' #5001 - bright glossy green hourglass body
Baby Bok Choy / Shanghai Bok Choy ("Ching Chang Bai Chai") green stem
All Season (Squat hour glass shape, thick petioles, light green stem)

Dwarf Bok Choy white stem (Tainong)
Tall Bok Choy white slender petioles, 8-10" tall (Tainong)
Bok Choy 'Joi Choi' (Sakata Seed) F1 Hybrid large white stem, up to 18"
Taiwan Bok Choy white stem 8-12" tall (non-hybrid variety Tainong)
Pak Choi 'Red Choi' from Hazzards

Tainong says they give 1 teaspoon (2-3 grams) in a $2 packet.

I think Kitazawa has the next-best prices, 400-800 seeds for $3.50
and Hazzards for once a little more expensive.

Rick, I'm interested. I was going to buy bulk Asian seeds from J L Hudson - especially Mustard 'Red Frills' and possibly the seaweed type. When I finish updating my received oinks etc., I'll go over there and make a list.

I'm thinking I could buy bulk seeds from Hudson, but have Hudson mail the seeds to you for dispersal.

Also, Stokes has a great selection of Asian vegies, too - including bulk. Stokes has pricy postage. Would someone else like to coordinate with Rick and possibly have them send seeds to Rick for dispersal, too?

All I can do right now is to mark my place - can't do much more until after the coming weekend. But I'll still try to make up a list and get it to you by dawn.

Hi, Bluespiral

I didn't know Hudson or stokes were into Asian seeds. I would be happy to become a "hub" for sharing Asian seeds and other Brassicas.

I went Hog Wild for some unknown reason and just ordered these from tainong, Kitazawa, Hazzards & Baker Creek.
I'll puff them up with detqils later, must run to lunch soonest!

from Tainong seeds, but some these are "spoken for" already in the Hog Wild Swap -
we'll see what's left when the feeding frenzy subsides.

Tall Bok Choy - OP white stem
Taiwan Bok Choy - OP - white stem 8-12" tall
Baby Bok Choy 'Ching Chang' #5001 - OP - bright glossy green hourglass body
Dark Green Gailan - OP - long thick stems. Tolerates heat & disease
Late Season Gailan - OP - Late season, slow bolting variety, for cool seasons


"Japanese Chard" Umaina fudansu #280 OP
