The renaming of Heirloom produce
I wish people/companies wouldn't do that. But with the renewed interest in heirloom tomatoes, you just know it was bound to happen. It used to be Rostova, but is now "Sunset Red Horizon". What are some others?
In the fruit aisle - instead of gooseberries, they were renamed "Kiwi" fruit and sales took off. It works from a marketing standpoint, but what was wrong with the original name?
They're doing this with melons as well. Butterscotch melons are now being sold as "Cotton Candy" by Freida's produce. I wonder if it's some kind of ploy. Home gardeners won't know what variety it is if they don't save the seeds and want to plant it later.
