Strong Plants And Disease Protection

Strong Plants And Disease Protection


Stokes Seeds Inc. offers some new varieties that not only boast hardy plants, they also offer disease resistance. Gourmet Sweet Brand Awesome is a sweet corn variety with better husk protection and greater yield potential. Strong, single plants show good Stewart’s wilt and rust tolerances.

Growing on a determinate plant with strong roots is Pony Express. This bean is tolerant to common bean mosaic virus, beet curly top virus, and some brown spot.

In the pumpkin department, Magic Wand weighs between 16 and 24 pounds and is very uniform in shape and size. This pumpkin has intermediate resistance to powdery mildew.  

Also featuring a nice uniform shape is Novator, a cabbage that offers growers nice, blue-green round heads at harvest. Novator is tolerant to internal blackening and Fusarium.
