Duelle, the latest variety of elongated red cherry tomatoes developed for the French market, was developed by Syngenta. The tomato is having a great season and has helped increase yields to more than 35 kg/m² in some places.
Its Brix level of 8-9°, heart shape, and bright red color make it a very attractive product, therefore very well received by French consumers. The Duelle tomato also stands out for its high yield potential, stable caliber, and the fact that it holds well. All these qualities have helped the variety find a nice place on the market.
Many French productions were impacted by the bad weather this year, but the Duelle crops were able to remain stable in terms of taste and appearance. They are indeed grown in heated glass greenhouses which allow producers to have full control over the crop and the climate.
The Duelle is available in trays of 250g or 500g, and in packages of 1kg.
