As we near the close of 2014, Olij Rozen East Africa have a good reason to smile. The beautiful red from Spek, Monte Carlo, has given them its first named mutation, Grace Kelly.
The vibrant cerise pink with the same growing characteristics as Monte Carlo is already proving a hit with the growers and buyers alike. A lot of trials have already been ordered. Olij recommends Grace Kelly for planting on 2200 meter farms, and are testing it on the higher altitudes as well. Other new varieties to watch out for include Aranchio and Revolution. Aranchio is a punchy orange and Revolution a luxurious bright red.
