Twilley Seed Catalog Arrived Today
Although this is not the first 2013 catalog to arrive, it is one I was really excited to see. There's two basic reasons why.
First, it is a southern seed company so the hybrids it carries generally have disease resistance (or tolerance) for diseases we actually see here.
Secondly, it carries quite a few tomatoes that have Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus resistance or tolerance, and a few that also are resistant to or tolerant of Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl. I know that a few folks here have had TSWV issues the last couple of years.
I noticed that it has Mountain Merit (tolerant of Early Blight and resistant to Late Blight) seed as well as Tasti-Lee and Top Gun. Y'all might remember an earlier discussion this year about Top Gun. Other TSWV-resistant varieties in the 2013 catalog include Amelia, Fletcher, Talladega and Bella Rosa. There are two varieties whose disease package includes both TYLC and TSWV, but those two varieties have numbers, not names, and I'll just abbreviate them to "4560" and "4500" instead of typing out the whole line of letters and numbers.
You can request a copy of their 2013 catalog at their website. There is a virtual catalog on their website that you can view, but so far it is still the 2012 catalog. I'm not sure when they'll get the 2013 one loaded and available online.
Finally, if you read Farmerdill's writings on other forums, like the Vegetable Forum, for example, you might notice he has used this seed company for years and often mentions varieties that they carry.
If you're interested in Mountain Merit, I'll just mention that it likely will sell out fast because of the Late Blight resistance.
