Hi Joyce,

Just went to your store. Can you suggest a few of your most disease-resistant varieties for me?

Hello Fred

I have never had any problems with Lescana Heirloom Tomatoes or Box Car Willie.
Debora Tomatoes can be grown anywhere as well with full sun.

Your soil care is the most important in fighting any disease-related issues. Also, crop rotation.

The heat moved me to use a Native American farming secret last year with my Great White that has never shown me any problems. Once transplanted they were just fine. So, I can make all my plants "Nor disease-related", because it came down to your soil in most all cases.

Also, Chesapeake Heirloom Tomatoes grow great without any disease problems too. https://www.angelfieldfarms.com/stor...Wholesale.html
