Persistent drought and high temperatures make fertigation indispensable

There seems to be no end to the drought and high temperatures with which the Netherlands has been struggling for weeks. This year is predicted to become even drier than the record year of 1976, and our dedicated team are accordingly busy constantly ensuring a proper supply of water and nutrients to our fruit trees. Thanks to their efforts we have managed to ensure uninterrupted growth.

Finesse Early Queen®

Finesse EarlyQueen® ripens approximately three weeks before any other Jonagold mutations and 1 to 2 weeks before Elstar and Conference. This is a bright red apple with a green background. Fruit will uniformly colour even in shaded areas of the tree. Due to the early colouring, maturity and harvest of the Finesse EarlyQueen® apple, it can be marketed and sold as a unique early apple to consumers.   Download brochure
