Positive Farmerdill On May 5, 2004, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

A new bright yellow semi-crookneck from Harris Moran. Has the precocious yellow gene which inhibits green from virus infections. It is extremely early and very high yielding. The female flowers preceded the male flowers, so interplanting with an early pollinizer could be helpful.
