Manalucie F1 Tomatoes
I cannot find a vendor who sells these seeds in the hybrid form (except Reimer, which does not have a great reputation), though several vendors sell the open-pollinated version of them. Has anyone purchased the hybrid seeds and where?
Manalucie tomatoes are listed as being not only tolerant of Southern heat and humidity but have tolerance to some diseases that can decimate tomatoes: blossom end-rot, Gray Leaf Mold, early blight and Fusarium Wilt (from Totally Tomatoes description of the OP version that they carry). The hybrid version is said to have the same disease tolerances. Sometimes heat tolerance is also mentioned for both versions. I'm beginning to wonder if the descriptions for the two versions are being carelessly mixed by vendors. I haven't seen a vendor who offers both the OP and hybrid versions, much less with different descriptions.
Does anyone know what the hybrid version adds to the OP version?
