Several years ago I shared my experience of being given some seeds for the Gete okosomin squash from a friend of mine in Wisconsin.finding gate okosomin seeds No matter what the actual story is of these wonderful seeds they are definitely an heirloom squash that has been grown for years and years. In fact when the seeds were first discovered finding Gete okosomin seeds was almost impossible. As a result after my post was published I have had numerous requests for seeds.finding gete okosomin seeds


When I first was given the seeds I planted them in my garden. Unfortunately that was the year we had a real drought and the harvest suffered. I did get some seeds but now enough to fulfill all the requests I had.finding gete okosomin seeds


Our house then went on the market and last year I cut way back on our vegetable garden and did not even plant any of the squash seeds. I continue to get requests from people who are having trouble finding Gete okosomin seeds.finding gete okosomin seeds


Since our house is still on the market and we’ve had a lot more interest this year I may or may not even have a vegetable garden this year. I thought I would do a little research for those of you who are having trouble finding the Gete okosomin seeds.


If you do a Google search on these Gete okosomin seeds you will find that there are not very many places to purchase the seeds.


Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds would be my top recommendation. Baker Creek is currently selling 10 seeds for $6.00. I love the story of Baker Creek Heirlom Seeds and am glad to support them by purchasing their seeds. Jere Gettle always had a passion for growing things, and at age 3 planted his first garden. Ever since, he wanted to be involved in the seed  industry. So in 1998, at the age of 17, he printed his first Baker Creek Heirloom Seed catalog. The company has grown to offer nearly 2,000 varieties of vegetables, flowers and herbs, the largest selection of heirloom varieties in the USA.


They are also available from the SeedWise website. A packet of 10 seeds is $3.50.


I also found an offer on Amazon for Frozen Seed Capsules. It lists that the capsule includes Gete okosomin Squash Seeds plus five rare garden seeds for $24.95! Seems a little high for me!


There were also two offers on Google.


Heirloom non GMO Gete okosomin Winter Squash Seeds for $0.99 plus $2.64 for shipping from eCrater-Survival Seeds. There was also a listing from Bonanza-Little Sprouts Farm’s Booth for 10 seeds for $5.64 plus $2.95 shipping.


I hope this helps for those of you having trouble finding Gete okosomin squash seeds. As soon as my garden is up and running I plan to grow these wonderful winter squash once again. They store well and have a wonderful taste. Well worth adding to your garden.finding gete okosomin seeds
