Soft fruit

The primary concern of Limgroup’s relatively recently launched activities in the field of strawberries is breeding both summer-fruiting and perpetual-fruiting strawberry varieties for the European market.

The formulated breeding objectives are a combination of criteria based on the requirements of growers, traders and consumers, the most important of which are fruit size, productivity, flavour and keeping quality.

Also high on Limgroup’s list of priorities are sustainable breeding objectives such as disease resistance. Limgroup’s strawberry-breeding team has all the modern cultivation facilities it needs to test varieties under different cultivation conditions. 

Currently, Limgroup has no commercial varieties.
