Garden Guide Told All But the Source of Gita Beans

Dear Bay Weekly:
    Your Home and Garden Guide [March 31] was a great edition, practical and perfect this time of year. I’ve been gardening since I was knee high and my father gave me my first square-foot plot for radishes I have some good-old Italian-American bean varieties that came with my family from Italy. Now I want to try the purple Gita bean the Bay Garden wrote about, if he can tell me where to find them.
