Randy,


I have a small pack of Monte Verde. Am I allowed to save, but not sell, seed?

Monte Verde has a PVP certificate which expired in 2015. Anyone can now produce and sell seed. The USDA Plant Variety Database has a listing of all the tomatoes which have been issued PVP certificates. I quit doing PVP years ago because of the expense and work of doing so plus the fact that they expire. Since then all my breeding lines have been transferred through signed MTAs regulating their use in breeding. I have not done any PVPs for my hybrids and am happy if others can use them in breeding to develop other useful tomatoes. After all, I started breeding with varieties developed by others.

Thanks for the info Randy. I'll get some seed and give them a try.




I have had several requests for a tomato that is productive, red, about 1.5 pounds, determinate, and with rich flavor. I can see some of these traits in lines you have developed. Any chance you are working on a very large fruited determinate with significantly improved flavor?
