Then there’s the jointed medium truss tomato TL1409352. "A bit coarser than Axiradius, about 10 grams," De Winter describes. "And with the same flat truss shape. It comes out at between 110-130 grams." The mildew resistant variety can be pruned to 6 and 7 and can be used loose and as a truss. "Especially loose is much sought after, certainly because the breed production is up to 5% higher." Next season 1409352 will be available in larger trials.TL1504425
In the second demo greenhouse of Axia Vegetable Seeds, plum truss tomato HTL1504425 can be found - an unexpected success variety. "We’ve widely set out plum tomato tests to learn more about the gene lines and characteristics. We saw the qualities of the 4425: It’s much less susceptible to BER and macrolophus damage. Then it turned out that the breed is also a strong producer and stands out in taste. The total salable production increases." Weighing between 118 and 120 grams and with little risk of yellow crowns the variety will enter the trials next year. TL1410099
Then finally to the 1410099, the new cocktail truss tomato, whereby the steering ability is unique. "The breed is very strong in terms of truss formation. Not only does it bloom early and quickly, but it also keeps it up. Which means that you can simply generate more trusses." The variety also distinguishes itself in another respect. The skin is remarkably thin, which improves the taste experience. The 1410099 is now in lit trials and will also be rolled out to unlit production next year.
