The velvet bean story is an interesting one. Velvet beans used to be
grown in association with corn in the early days of Florida agriculture.
Velvet beans are good n-fixers. Also, velvet beans do a good job
suppressing nematodes. BTW, the genus is *Stizolobium* and there are
several species. We have some seed of runner types. I would be interested
in getting seed of some determinate, bush types.
We do not have quantities of seed, but probably could provide
a small quantity of seed to Thomas and others who send us a written
request thru snailmail.

If anyone out there knows of a source of determinate velvet bean, I would
like to talk/communicate with that person.
