Here's a working link -- I think the problem is with the space that Gardenweb (presumably) inserted in the url.

Insect resistance? Hadn't heard that one before although I've read about these two varieties in Goodfruit. We shall see how this plays out- the link leads to what is basically a Cornell commercial.

As I recall, the plan is not to allow the variety to be sold beyond licensed growers, so we may not be able to grow them in home orchards legally for a couple of decades.

I can't help but wonder if they are genetically modified since they are not required to state as such.
