    Assuming you have already considered Sprouts, Sunflower, etc. If you are looking to buy .wholesale, you probably don't qualify. I'm sorry, but that is the best I can do as a new resident.

      They are on sale this week at Safeway for $2 each, though I'm not sure what you would consider a good price.

        If you eat that many, grow your own, the bushes thrive in Tucson. Dad had three bushes in our yard back in the '50's & '60's, I can't believe what they cost nowadays, my brother and I would get spankings from our mom because we would throw them at each other and stain our clothes. Good old days.

          We planted one last year but are waiting for the harvest. Last year we found some at costco for under a dollar each.

          I'd recommend sunflower or Trader Joe's. And tend your tree well. They're tough trees, but respond beautifully to water and fertilizer. And look out for those damned leaf-footed bugs, they'll ruin your whole crop, but there are biological controls you can use.
