Italy: Clause earns Tomato Excellent prize again

For the second year running, Clause has earned the "Tomato Excellent" prize for cherry tomatoes. This year, it's the CREATIVO variety that took home the honors.

CREATIVO features advantageous characteristics for both producers and operators. Producers say they appreciate the robust character of the plant and its flexibility for short and long crops during over-winter production. Its resistance to diseases is another significant advantage, especially concerning TYLCV and Cladosporiosis. For growers, CREATIVO guarantees success with high quality fruit that has firm flesh and doesn’t crack. The variety is also successful with operators because it holds up well after harvesting and has a long post-harvest shelf life which are both essential criteria for exporting fruit.

The Clause teams’ breeding work has once again been recognized. CREATIVO follows in the footsteps of GENIO which won the Tomato Excellent prize in the same category last year. With two consecutive wins for different varieties of cherry tomatoes, Clause has established its position as the market leader for cherry tomatoes in Sicily.

Tomato Excellent is a national competition among Italian seed producers to award the prize for the best tomato varieties. These varieties are judged on their organoleptic characteristics, their capacity to adapt to local conditions, disease resistance and national and international competitiveness. The aim of this competition is to promote genetic research and innovation and to highlight Sicilian products.
