Schoneveld Breeding Recaps Cyclamen Open Days
Visitors to the annual Cyclamen Open Days of Schoneveld Breeding were met by a huge splash of colors at the start of their tour. The Dutch breeder opened the doors of its greenhouses at the end of October to show what they have. Visitors were received in a winter wonderland for a guided tour through the greenhouses. In there, they discovered all about cold tolerant crops, got to know the new two-toned Super Serie Fusion and enjoyed all the beauty Schoneveld Breeding has in its assortment.
In these times of world-wide energy shortages it is a great advantage to grow crops that require little energy. The cold tolerant Super Serie Mini Winter, Picasso, Macro and Vintro amazed visitors of the Cyclamen Open Days. Schoneveld Breeding developed these crops that require a low energy input. Every single one of them grows out into a high-end quality product. These lines make sure growers’ production can go on during the colder season. Of course, the growing supporters of Schoneveld Breeding are happy to share the adjusted cultivation protocol with growers.
Newcomer to the Cyclamen Open Days was Super Serie Fusion. This large flowered Cyclamen was bred from the well know Super Serie genetics. Fusion is a special highlight with its two-toned flowers. The series starts with Fusion Large Neon Pink, a beautiful plant with flowers in distinct pink and white, separated by a hard line. The ideal flowering time is from the end of September onwards. Although Super Serie Fusion is not available commercially yet, samples are already available.
Super Serie Leopardo was also present during the Cyclamen Open Days. This heat tolerant, large flowered powerhouse is available in seven colors. Leopardo is easy to grow under warmer conditions. Schoneveld Breeding has learned that Leopardo is mostly stress tolerant, which means this series is also perfect for colder areas. Leopardo has a relatively short production time.
