New strawberry and raspberry varieties

Sabrina has been a success in the Mediterranean basin, according to its developer, Planasa. Its market share in the area in just four years stands above 35%. Meanwhile, the Sabrosa-Candonga, after more than 12 years in the market, remains the leading strawberry variety when it comes to quality.

The Sahara and Safari are the latest additions to the company's catalogue of strawberry varieties for warm climates. The Sahara was introduced last year and the Safari is the latest launch. "The Safari is an extremely early variety, developed for subtropical climates. It is a very compact plant, which facilitates the harvesting process, and becomes productive from early November. The results have been amazing this season. It is a variety with great potential," stresses the company.

The development of strawberry varieties in northern Europe is always slower and more complex; however, the early variety Dream is performing spectacularly well in the south of France and the UK, which means there are very good prospects for it. The Dream meets the industry's need for a very early strawberry variety, with high quality and a long shelf life; characteristics which are not easy to find. It can be complemented with other varieties, such as the Amandine (remontant), and the Deluxe, which has a great flavour.

Adelita, a very tasty raspberry 365 days a year
The raspberry developed and registered by PLANASA stands out from other varieties because of its large size and capacity to produce in all seasons. Its cultivation has quadrupled in just one campaign and its splendid production results and quality have earned this raspberry, presented by Planasa in 2011, an unparalleled reputation.

There are currently more than 1,000 hectares of Adelita plantations across the world. The variety is cultivated by selected growers in Mexico, Spain, Morocco, California, France, Tunisia, United Kingdom, Portugal, Italy and Germany. It can only be obtained through exclusive dealers in order to preserve its quality, from the planting until it reaches the final consumer.

In addition to its R&D programmes for strawberries and raspberries, the company also has a wide range of blueberry and blackberry plants; range which the company will unveil at Fruit Logistica: Hall 18 / A08.
