Mortgage Lifter VFN has those VFN traits bred into it, and then it was
stabilized as an OP.  All OP's, if you save seed from year to year, tend to
develop resistance or tolerance to the local diseases.  Don't know Chuck
Wyatt's URL.  Ask on the list.  Garden Peach is the tomato you read about in
OG.  I've grown it for years, and yes, it does resemble a peach--yellow with
pink blush and fuzzy.  The taste is on the fruity side, but it still tastes
like a sweet tomato.  I have seeds if you'd like some.  I save lots of seed.
Send you address.
