MORGANTOWN (AP) — West Virginia University is making seeds of a blight-resistant tomato available to home gardeners.
West Virginia 63 tomato was developed at WVU 50 years ago as part of
the state's centennial celebration. WVU says a limited supply of seeds
will be available starting March 4.
Retired WVU professor Mannon
Gallegly bred the tomato. He says the West Virginia 63 is a good for
both canning and for slicing in sandwiches.
Seeds can be obtained
through the WVU Extension Agriculture and Natural Resources Unit at
(304) 293-6131. Seeds are limited to one packet per household while
supplies last. They also can be requested through local WVU Extension
