Traditional crop Luciana

Traditional crop Luciana Quality, uniformity and production • Powerful and labor friendly • Early production • High average fruit weight (350-400 grams) • Intermediate resistance to powdery mildew • Fruit length between 29-36 cm The spring variety Lucania is a powerful and labor friendly crop. It is a relatively relatively easy to grow plant type, but it requires a generative steering direction, especially on sunny days. This will result in an early production, a nice development of tendrils and ensures a balanced crop. The good uniform fruit quality and the stable production are decisive factors to choose for this variety. Those characteristics in combination with its intermediate resistance to powdery mildew and the fact that it is not sensitive for Mycosphaerella makes it a very complete variety. E23L.2391 Production and fruit quality • High total production • Excellent fruit quality • Beautiful dark green fruit color • Open and labor friendly crop • Intermediate resistance to powdery mildew The new spring variety E23L.2391, with an intermediate resistance to powdery mildew, has been introduced at different growers last spring. It can be described best as an open crop, therefore it is a labor friendly variety. Due to this, this characteristic contributes to a very good fruit quality. Especially the dark green fruit color, the uniform fruit length and the fact that this variety performs well against Mycosphaerella will be traced back till the end of the crop. It is best to steer this variety towards growth to ensure a balanced crop. This will result in an open crop with small upstanding leaves. Because E23L.2391 is labor friendly, has a high total production and has an excellent fruit quality, the growers see this variety as a full alternative within the traditional segment. Enza Zaden | 3
