types I will have to check the name of the seed supplier, its a company from
Japan, the >company name sounds like Knowyou seeds or something like that.

It's probably Known-You-Seeds, from Taiwan. They actually carry a lot of
product that does well here but is rather exotic. Growers with niche markets
can often use their product. Here's their address;

    26 Chung Cheng 2nd Road
    Kaohsing, Taiwan
    Republic of China

I've used their material in trials. I'm not sure what their response would
be to requests from growers.
