Hi Margaret, Byron, and all...

I remember noting that (off the top of my head) an OP variety named Roza
is touted to have curly top resistance.  The two sources I remember for it
are Abundant Life and Peters Seed & Research (PSR).  Just re-checked the
PSR pages, and it indicates that "it was bred to resist curly top, VF,
nematodes, and other problems."

So, that's at least one variety that fits the description you gave,
Margaret.  Again supporting the premise that BCTV resistance exists in
some varieties.
