Another comeback to the disease question is -- where do you think they find the disease resistance in the first place ??? from those old time varieties that showed the resistance LOL.

It's just like with the potatoes, they have to go back to the closer to wild (read un-hybridized) varieties to find the genetics.

Carolyn had a great post on an old forum about this. If I can find my copy of it on my old computer, I'll post it later. I had a computer meltdown about a month ago and I'm still trying to find things I need so be patient with me.

Maybe Carolyn will see this and post her take on this issue.
