Here is another cool online resource, which I found via the wonderful blog Homegrown Evolution: Mother Earth News has created a Google Custom Search engine to help people find the exact variety they’re looking for, by consulting 500+ online seed catalogues. (The photo they chose to accompany the post is priceless!)
Here are the ten results for cannellini beans, a type of bean which is very much in favour in our house and not so easy to find.
It would be nice to filter the results by country or (even better) by whether or not they are certified organic. Still, it’s a good tool for finding those tricky-to-find seeds.
