Monsanto discontinued the sale of new leaf potato seed in 2001. Delayed ripening tomatoes, they get gassed around here instead to ripen them.

I see you are going all GM, didn't think that was your interest.

.... but I can recommend Markies. Supposed to be a second early variety and came in at about that time, but we've just dug and eaten the last of them about a week ago AND they were scrapeable to the end with only slight slug damage.
