The variety Tabasco is grown in Kenya by the Fontana Group under exclusive agreement. Appana: “At Fontana, we do strict selections from 2015 varieties. Only varieties that are not susceptible to botrytis, that have good vase life and after extensive testing are chosen. And the Tabasco was the chosen Orange among many varieties.” Nirp International was very pleased with this selection. “For us, as breeder, it is very important that a new variety is introduced on the market through excellent companies that will bring on the market high quality flowers. In this way the buyers will start to know and appreciate the new variety. In particular, the first period is very important: positive first impressions are fundamental to start to generate interest in the novelty”, says Ghione.
