Post by Wally » November 17th, 2019, 7:41 pm

How does one find vendors for a specific seed cultivars? For example, the TTTF cultivar Thor, how would one find a source?

I would start by searching online. Of course, that isn't always reliable. You can then call a few places to see if they have it. If you still don't have luck, you could ask on here. After that, you may need to call or email the company that markets the cultivar to ask if they can point you in the right direction.

The bet method is to find the company that created the cultivar and ak them how to get it in your area. They know which distributors/sellers carry your favorite cultivar.

How do you know who owns a cultivar?

If you search online, you can often find that. Some of the major companies are SRO, Burlingham, Mountain View, and Jacklin/Simplot. There are many others as well.
