Not always Fred,and you and I posted at the same time and if you look at my post above yours and a few above mine, I think You'll see what I mean.

Burpee used to subcontract out to Petoseed and tell them what they wanted and unfortunately sometimes they wanted one that was well known variety,such as Tye Dye. Or one like Fourth of July,etc.

It's been just a few years that Burpee regrouped and got out from where George Ball had put them and now have a couple of new breeders at their place in PA,so we shall see what comes next.
