Q: What information does Sakata have regarding Bacterial Fruit Blotch?

Q: Why is Sakata sometimes out of the variety that I want?
A: Growing enough (but not too much) high quality seed of the many items we carry is a challenging undertaking. We do our best to estimate needs, and then to grow and prepare enough seed to satisfy 100% of those needs, but sometimes we fall short or demand increases over planned supply. Bad weather, pest attack's, underestimation of demand, and other factors contribute to this problem. Rest assured that we are trying very hard to have every variety we list in sufficient quantity to meet demand. Advance communication with your Sakata distributor regarding your needs, as early as possible, will help us to better project demand.
