GEORGIA JET

Short season variety. They store really well if properly cured. We've tried other varieties but none yielded like Georgia Jet so that's all that we grow now. Price $2.00 per slip plus postage. Payment is by Paypal or Interac.

We've been growing this variety for 4 years so they're well adjusted to a growing season of ~ 120 frost free days. They are virus free so far.

I'd be interested in trying this variety, Mike. What zone are you in?

Zone 5a. I think that you'd have to be creative where you are unless you've got a greenhouse. Maybe there's something in Ken Allan's book that you could adapt to your zone.

I sort of suspected that. I would probably try it in the greenhouse. I did just blast through your site. Some great stuff there. I sent you an email on the address listed on your webpage. I was asking about comfrey, sweet potatos, and other perennial propagation bits you might have on offer this spring. Thanks in advance, Roberto.
