Default Early Goliath is back, well, sort of

I have been in touch with Totally Tomatoes about 10 days ago. They said that they have found a "New" tomato to be the "Early Goliath". I contacted them because their 2018 catalog showed their Early Goliath tomato to be Tswv Resistant, early, and Indeterminate.
I lost all my tomatoes last year to Tswv. Their catalog said that they no longer were offering that tomato and that they were substituting Early Girl.

Allen Pyle at TotallyTomatoes (Jungseed ?) answered back, that they had found a new replacement from Israel. And yes it is TSWV , YLCV resistant. It will be the first year they have offered it and they have corrected the web page and will Not be substituting Early Girl for Early Goliath. If you order Earth Goliath from them, you will receive the New Type. He also said that any other sources of Early Goliath will not be the new type.

I ordered some a few days ago, after I had already ordered 45 seeds of the old type ? from Hirt's Gardens.
