I have only seen Early Girl on the seed racks this season. Since Big Girl is an F1 hybrid, it has to be crossed annually for fresh seed. It appears that there was a crop failure last season so no fresh seed for 2009.

Could be a hard one to find. I bought some a year or two ago, but it was not an easy undertaking. Had to buy them through an auction.

At this point, I believe the latest crop failed, and so they're not readily available.. Only major supplier I could find so far that even has them listed is Reimer's but they list them as out of stock:

There's a link on that page to have them notify you when they're back in stock.
