Zuc­chini BA­ZOOKA

Very easy pick­ing with open plant habit and long stem, Ba­zooka has high re­sis­tance to an im­pres­sive list of dis­eases: PRSV, ZYMV, CMV, WMV, Px. Straight mid-dark green fruit with small blos­som end scar and cylin­dri­cal fill­ing makes for at­trac­tive pre­sen­ta­tion.

But­ter­nut T-REX

Look­ing for a hy­brid but­ter­nut? T-Rex is our new in­tro­duc­tion with ma­tu­rity Waltham plus 5-8 days. T-Rex still pro­duces that nice Waltham shape but with a big­ger neck and plenty of flesh. Bright or­ange in­ter­nal colour with creamy skin. Fruit weigh 1.5-2.3kg. Try it!

Beet­root RAP­TOR

Is set to de­vour the mar­ket stan­dard! Very uni­form F1 globe shaped beet with dark red in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal colour. The key to beet is thin taproot and nar­row but strong leaf at­tach­ment and RAP­TOR gets full marks for th­ese two points alone! Add smooth skin and strong tops mak­ing this va­ri­ety per­fect for both fresh mar­ket and pro­cess­ing pur­poses. RAP­TOR’s fo­liage stands up par­tic­u­larly well un­der warm con­di­tions. De­li­cious and nu­tri­tious beet!
