It looks like I'm also out of Triple Treat pea. Would be good for breeding.

Tried googling a seed source for it. Seems like a nice pea, didn't even know there were triple podded peas...

 There is a source in Canada: Prairiegardenseeds.ca

 They are also selling Aristagreen "Good flavored, short podded triple podded pea".  They are also selling Triplet, which is similar to Triple Treat - but it is earlier and lower yielding.

 They have a wide range of Fava beans as well. Also a grass pea with less neurotoxins. Good bit of cold hardy tomatoes as well.
 Figured I would mention other things of interest just in case you think about ordering from them. Might make ordering out of country somewhat more worth it.

Prairie Garden Seed is a national treasure!

I got Aristagreen from them them a few years back. I can't say it lived up to my hopes. I can't remember about the tripleness ( I think the answer is yes, there was some) but the pods were quite concentrated at the top of the plant, and over-all it was not particularly productive. I believe I do still have a little seed.
