Elsanta is still the UK’s most important variety thirty-one years after its initial release by the Dutch breeders. Superb fruit quality and excellent shelf life make this the supermarkets’ favourite.

 

Susceptibility to fruit splitting and malformation, a compact picking season and poor disease resistance, particularly to Verticillium Wilt and other soil-borne diseases, limit the profitability of this variety in many situations.

 

The medium to large, firm, orange-red fruit are the variety’s greatest asset. Susceptibility to Two Spotted Mite and Powdery mildew also test the grower’s competence. Fresh dug plants are available from mid-September through to mid-April. Bench graded cold-stored plants are offered from January until end June.

 

A+15mm+

The traditional A+ grade that offers good 60-day potential at a realistic price. Carefully selected to ensure that all plants reach a minimum of 15mm crown diameter. No large plants are removed from this grade.
