Negative Farmerdill On Jan 22, 2004, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

For me this cultivar was strictly a novelty. It does not have leaves as such, just tendrils and stipules. Production was very inferior to other varieties being grown in the same plot. It was introduced by Rogers Brothers in 1980 and is Plant Variety Protected (PVP). It is of course open pollinated so you can save seeds, but selling or swapping those seeds is illegal.
