Watermelon breeding was re-started in the end of 90’s, after a break of two decades. During past period, we succeeded in creating numerous varieties which are used with satisfaction by the growers. Main trend of our breeding is developing early, good setting and high yielding diploid (seedy) hybrids, with striped rind, first class quality fruits, having excellent taste and resistance to different Fusarium races, within the early round, mid-early round-oblong and elongated segments. In early round segment we have triploid (seedless) variety as well.
All our varieties are of outstanding quality in flesh, colour, consistency, taste, sugar- and flavour content, most of them have small seeds, thin rind and they are very marketable. Our aim is to keep our varieties’ premium parameters and to integrate such characteristics, which are important regarding the growers’ needs. Among these ones, we are concentrating on stress tolerance, which means producing high yield and good quality fruits within different weather and growing conditions.
