Polecat (Calico Crowder) Peas

I would like to know where to buy the old time Polecat peas? They have a pink eye, we planted them when I was young, before I married. Maybe they changed the name of them. If you can help, please let me know. Thanks very much.

Hardiness Zone: 8a

Do you want seeds for planting? This site below was one of the only ones that weren't sold out.

Besides Calico Crowder or Polecat Peas they also go by the name Hereford Pea.

They were listed as one of the "dissappearing foods":

Also sometimes you can get info on where to find from your local county extension office or even at Farmer's Markets or Natural Foods Co-ops.
