I’m confused by Cindy F’s comment….
‘The Femlings grow 13 kinds of apples at Afton Apple Orchard, about 15 miles southeast of downtown St. Paul. Most of their varieties came from the university, including the hugely successful Honeycrisp. Theyâ€™re not growing the SweeTango, and they fear what will happen if it becomes as popular as the Honeycrisp. Cindy Femling said theyâ€™re already losing sales.’
She states most of their varieties came from the Univ. including their hot selling oop….hugely successful…. Honeycrisp. Isn’t that calling the kettle black? The F’s orchards had huge success with the Honeycrisp but now it’s ‘sour grapes’ that someone else is having huge success with Sweetango? What’s wrong with that picture?

oops again…..’isn’t that “the pot” calling the kettle black’….my old brain is faster than my old fingers LOL
I agree with you Misty.
I was also wondering how you can sue your competition simply for being competition. Does this mean if Burger King suddenly decides to make a new kind of burger, that McDonald’s can sue, claiming that only McDonald’s is the only one allowed to make a different kind of burger?
