      The performances of four curly top resistant tomato varieties were observed in Arizona during the period 1961 to 1964. Owyhee showed resistance but produced small fruits. Breeding line No. 126 and its improved replacement VF 122, had field resistance, but VF 122 did not set fruit as well as other varieties under high temperature conditions. Payette appeared to be the most promising of the varieties tried. It showed better resistance than Owyhee and produced good yields of desirable fruit when staked and trained properly.
