● Fruit Logistica 2014, Hall 2.2 - Stand B-12
2013 was a really positive year for Cora Seeds. Many products did well on the market, and onions and peppers actually grew.
As Maurizio Bacchi, general manager of Cora Seeds, told FreshPlaza, "we increased our market share both in Italy and abroad with Elenka F1, Fiamma F1 and White Opera F1 onions despite the fact that there were less cultivated areas. We have also introduced our varieties of peppers in the Verona area, Campania and Sicilia, and red Lothar F1 and yellow Phantom F1 did particularly well."

"A positive feedback also came from open field Batavia lettuce such as Aquarel, Susybel and Loribel. Another strong product are Nikas F1 mini-watermelons thanks to its production and uniformity."
The species Cora Seeds worked hard to launch was fennel. "Caronte F1 (photo below) is ideal for winter production in Southern Italy. Harvesting is now starting and the produce has an excellent quality. The feedback so far is great."
Caronte F1 is a late hybrid for winter cultivation. It has a big round core and a white and smooth bulb. Plants are rustic and vigorous. It has a late cycle (120-130 days), it must be transplanted between September and October and sowed in August.
Cora Seeds will take part to Fruit Logistica 2014 (Berlin, 5th-7th February ), Hall 2.2 / Stand B-12, with its range of products and the latest news on research. Maurizio Bacchi (general manager of Cora Seeds), Carlo Piccinini (export manager - Cell.: +39 345 3797036 / Email: [email protected]).
