Melons on track

In this news article we would like to draw your attention to some of the melon varieties we are widely testing.

ES 25136 F1
This melon is an Ananas type variety. The variety is extremely early (10 days earlier than competitive varieties). Fruit weight 1.5 kg; the interior flesh is of an orange colour. Full resistance package.

ES 25137 F1
Galia melon type variety with a yellow-orange rind. Colour of the interior flesh is light green/white. The variety has a full resistance. Fruit weight 1.5-2 kg.

ES 25150 F1 (LSL)
Furthermore we have a very nice new LSL Ananas type under test (ES 25150 F1). The variety is early, colour of the interior flesh deep orange and surrounds a narrow seed cavity. Although the flesh is firm, it is juicy and crispy with a good bite. This melon can stand high temperatures during the cultivation (up to 45oC).

In short, the variety has an excellent flavour profile (brix 13-14). The variety has a high production of uniform fruits with a fruit weight of 2-2.5 kg. The variety has a full resistance.

We do have more LSL Galia type melons under test, but they are still in an experimental stage. Please find below three photos for your orientation.
