Can you explain what the various VF ratings mean? I stopped at the store yesterday and noticed some have VF, VFNN, VF123, etc.

Here's the breakdown: A for resistance to Alternaria leaf spot; F for resistance to Fusarium wilt; FF for resistance to Race 1 & Race 2 Fusarium; L for resistance to Septoria leaf spot; N for resistance to Nematodes; T for resistance to Tobacco mosaic virus; V for resistance to Verticilium wilt. Hope this helps.
