El Nio Use varieties tolerant to Fusarium races 1, 2, & 3; and soil-borne fungal problems Use varieties tolerant to Fusarium races 1,2 & 3; and soil-borne fungal problems Use varieties tolerant to disease transmitted by thrips and white fly (TYLCV) La Nia Use varieties tolerant to diseases transmitted by thrips and white fly (TYLCV). Hot sets for early plantings. Use varieties tolerant to diseases transmitted by thrips and white fly (TYCLV). Hot sets for most plantings, especially later ones. Varieties that concentrate fruit set on first pick. Fungal disease resistance is not as important a criterion as usual. Normal Neutral Normal Normal Normal
