Secret seed cartel is carrying it year. It's under blacks/purples and Blane Horton varieties.

About Husky Gold Cherry

http://t.tatianastomatobase.com/wiki/Husky_Cherry_Gold

You'll see that there is no information since Husky Gold itself has not been available for many years.

Petoseed bred several that were called Husky this or that but they were not popular and so they discontinued them, and that b'c most folks didn't know about deep green rugose foliage.Only the red versions still exist, see the link below

None of them were true dwarfs, they were determinate compact plants.

I'm curious but where did you get your seeds for Husky Gold Cherry which I would assume has the same plant habit as Husky Gold itself, but I'm not sure.

Some of the links in his Google search might help.

The originator plant for Faelen's First Snow was found in a flat of Cherokee Purple bedding plants in a New Hampshire nursery, and since has been grown out by a few people to determine its stability.

Husky Gold Cherry seeds that are circulating come from repeated grow-outs from its original hybrid condition.
