She's included one of my personal favorite--Black from Tula. It's always my
most productive (and best tasting) black, producing a good crop in both
Atlanta and the Texas Hill Country. Some New England and Pacific Northwest
growers are trialing it with me this year; I'm curious to see how it stacks
up when grown under coolish summer conditions. It won't develop as much of
the 'black' color; but it should be an interesting comparison.
