New Varieties
New beefsteak from Rijk Zwaan

February 2015 – Rijk Zwaan has a reputation to uphold when it comes to slightly smaller, flavourful beefsteak tomatoes…

The new variety ‘72-626 RZ’ is an excellent example of this. In the Rijk Zwaan demos, this variety is spontaneously picked out – time and time again – for its good flavour. Not only do the fruits have a good Brix value, the texture and pleasant aftertaste are also mentioned as positive characteristics. The average fruit weight is 240 to 250 grams and the tomatoes have a slightly oblate shape. Another benefit of ‘72-626’ is the rarity of dropped tomatoes.
