- Southern New England
I am asking for your kind indulgence here. With the great variety and choice of Virginia type seed available, I am trying to narrow down my efforts. Looking for seed that is now or has recently been grown commercially (since it should have good resistance to various maladies.) Prefer faster maturity for New England growing season (set plants out late May.) Resistance to especially target spot, frog eye, TMV, blue mold, black root rot. Prefer thinner leaves, minimal suckers and aphids after topping. Setting to first priming in about 6 weeks. Cures light, even if air cured after leaf is yellow on the plant. Virginia, Carolina, Soviet types. Which flue cured seed do you like best? I am already going to use K326 and Del Gold but I want to try a couple others, but not heirlooms. Thanks in advance to all you generous folks.
