A good fruit requires a great seed
Hybrid in yellow type, very strong plant short internode, good settability and yield and excellent rusticity suitable mostly for medium-early transplanting and no irrigation. Oval shape, medium-large size (2,5 Kg.), firm whitish flesh, crispy and very sweet. Good storability and shippability.
HR: Fusarium (Fom: 0, 2)
IR: Powdery mildew (Px: 1,2,5)
A smaller size variety for late open field transplants (from mid-April to the end of May, depending on the area).
A high vigor plant.
Medium to small sized, oval-shaped fruits. Firm flesh, with traditional flavor and texture.
Skin shows little roughness, medium yellow color when ripe.
IR: Powdery mildew (Px/Gc)
Yellow melon hybrid with a high vigour and very hardy plant. Variety suitable for open field transplants as well as early transplants in greenhouses and tunnels. Medium-early ripening cycle. Oval-shaped fruit with white flesh. Peel with good roughness weighing 2-3 kg and a beautiful yellow colour.
High Brix content and excellent retention both in the field and post-harvest. storability.
HR: Fusarium (Fom: 0.1), Melon necrotic spot (MNSV).
IR: Powdery mildew (Gc/Px: 1,2,5)
This variety is particularly suitable for extra early transplanting, from February onwards. It is remarkable for its capacity to acquire Brix and yellow colouring very early.
High fruit set capacity under plastic in greenhouse and thermal blanket tunnel in open air.
Medium-large fruit, weighing about 2kg, with smooth, slightly rough skin and oval-elongated shape.
HR: Fusarium (Fom 0,1), Melon necrotic spot (MNSV).
IR: Powdery mildew (Gc/Px 1,2,5).
High Resistance. Plant varieties that highly restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen under normal pest or pathogen pressure when compared to susceptible varieties. These plant varieties may, however, exhibit some symptoms or damage under heavy pest or pathogen pressure.
Intermediate Resistance. Plant varieties that restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen, but may exhibit a greater range of symptoms or damage compared to high resistant varieties. Intermediately resistant plant varieties will still show less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant varieties when grown under similar environmental conditions and/or pest or pathogen pressure.
Physiological races Bl:1-15 of Bremia lactucae (downy mildew) in lettuce are agronomical no longer relevant in Europe, as to the best of our knowledge these races are no longer observed in practice in Europe nowadays. Therefore reference to the races Bl:1-15 is no longer made in resistance claims with regard to B. lactucae. From May 1st 2014 onwards, the resistance claim of a variety refers only to Bl:16-31.
P.s.: Although race Bl:19 is to the best of our knowledge also no longer observed in practice nowadays, reference to the race Bl:19 will continue to be made in resistance claims with regard to B. lactucae to simplify the notation of the resistance claim. In practice this means that for example Bl:16-31 should be understood as Bl:16-18,20-31.
