5. Well, one problem with buying plants is that ...

... very few growers want to take a chance on anything outside of the "normal".

You kind find a million big box nurseries, garden centers, mom and pop stands every spring selling some boring, old standby variety of veggies, such as 'Dusky' or 'Black Beauty' eggplants, 'California Wonder' or 'Keystone Giant' peppers, 'Big Boy', 'Celebrity', 'Champion' tomatoes.

But, if you want something unusual, good luck. You might, might find it at a farmer's market, a few of the growers are sometimes willing to take a chance on the "exotic."

But, generally, you have to grow it yourself from seed.
