I found Ichiban starter plants at my local nursery last year, under the brand name "Chef Jeff."

Amazon has a listing for Ichiban seeds from Pase for $1.79 with free shipping, but the arrival date may put you off. Here's a link to that listing:

Bonnie Plants lists Ichiban as a starter plant that they will offer, depending on location, so seeds are still out there, but more controlled distribution.

And...last but not least, you can find them for sale at Hazzard's Greenhouse, but the minimum quantity is 250 seeds for $14.66 plus shipping. That's a whole lotta eggplant seeds.

BTW, Kürüme is an even better alternative that is almost identical to Ichiban but sweeter, and it's open-pollinated. Kitizawa has seeds on their website, or you can find it listed on Amazon from Kitizawa, which saves you a bit on shipping if that's the only seed you'd be buying from Kitizawa.

I love Kurume a lot.
