IF I get my seed, all is good. Assuming they won’t go bankrupt in next couple of weeks...

1989, which in turn was purchased by Yamanouchi Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd of Japan.***
2007, Harry and David Holdings sold most of the assets of Jackson & Perkins to an investment group headed by Donald and Glenda Hachenberger.**** The Hachenberger investment group also owns an interest in the Park Seed Company.
@Xerocles can use this information if he has to go in and kick some tail.

"What, is this outfit still owned by a drug company? You guys been sampling the products??"
"Hey, I know these local real estate developers. I've got half a mind to go to them and mention some names!"

Honestly, I didn't have any problems with Park back when I have ordered from them.

I just ordered inoculate for my beans from them without any problems so far. I put the wrong zipcode in and they emailed me saying to call them. Talked to a rep on the phone it was straightened out and I've got an email saying my order was on its way.

Looking for suggestions on a variety to grow that is sweet and not real seedy. I’ve grown sugar babies. Love the favor but way too many seeds. So give me some suggestions.
Congrats @seedcorn, your thread is now featured on the homepage. Keep us posted about your watermelon endeavors. :celebrate

This may be a bit late as I happened to just see the thread- but we're going to suggest the hometown favorite that's now made it into some big seed catalogs. A variety named the Clay County Yellowmeat (alternately Yellow Meat) was developed here in our county and it's DELICIOUS! It's such an important staple that we have a countywide festival to celebrate it. I've got a few frozen seeds and just planted some and have a few plants coming up this year. If anyone is interested, I know a great man that used to be our pastor who may be selling seed.
