The latest updates
Hygrotech has just screened the first hybrid Habanero cultivars. In these trials all three cultivars stood out regarding their plant sizes and fruit quality. Slightly bigger fruits than the old fashioned open pollinated. We are very excited to introduce something that will benefit all parties involved.
Nurseries can now produce seedlings of high standard due to the vigour of hybrid potential. Due to quicker nursery turnaround, growers will receive strong and healthy plants with exceptional disease resistances. These plants grow stronger and almost as quick as normal hot peppers.
The below mentioned range is ideal for the serious Habanero grower. Higher seed prices can be expected, but with quicker, stronger and healthier plants one can recover the difference easily.
In the picture: These impressive plants stood out in the Komatipoort area. Strong healthy struture insure top yields and protection agaisnt sunburn.
