PUMPKIN OPEN DAY AT NIAB – 29TH SEPTEMBER 2016

September 30, 2016 2:38 pm

We attended the NIAB trial on 29th September which was organised for seed companies to present their new and existing products to growers.

Tozer Seeds presented three Halloween Pumpkins – two commercial varieties that are sold across the UK – Racer and Mars.

The third variety is a new hybrid (TZ4171) which has been developed for the larger category market (20-25cm diameter).  The variety performed very well with exceptional uniformity and high skin and handle quality; it will be available for trials in 2017.  Trials such as these are hugely important for seed companies to see how our varieties perform against the competition and make the perfect platform for seed companies to interact with one another, with growers and to encourage research in our sector.  We would like to thank NIAB for all their hard work and we look forward to working with them in the future.
