The season for many autumnal products has really got going now that autumn has truly arrived. Brassica is among the products that are widely available again. Breeder Takii believes in this product and has been working to both update and improve the existing range for a number of years. The introduction of the Crane King and Crane Queen varieties puts Brassica ‘in the frame’ once again.
The existing ‘Crane’ family, which includes Crane Red and Crane White, is being supplemented with two newcomers. The Brassica range has improved in many aspects; there is innovation in both the cultivation and the appearance of the product. The foliage of the new Crane King and Crane Queen varieties is not rounded, but feathered. As well as enhancing the beauty of the product, this is also a significant benefit for the growers. It means the Brassica is less prone to diseases and more consistent in terms of quality and height. These new varieties also have a lot to offer consumers. The feathered foliage is innovative and fits into contemporary floral arrangements.
Brassica is grown in both the field and the greenhouse and therefore has a long season. These Brassicas are available from various growers, each with a wide range, up to the end of January. A large number of Dutch growers are growing Takii's range of Brassica. The following growers have ample supply: Bloemenkwekerij Eduard Daling, Kwekerij Havenman, Bloemenkwekerij van Thiel and Steenwijk Abbenes.
