KWELI®

SHELF LIFE TO AN EXTREME!

Kweli® is a primocane raspberry variety for fairly universal use. The variety is easy to grow and gives high to very high yields. The fruit has an excellent shelf life, which enables transport over longer distances, thereby opening up new markets. This makes Kweli® a very attractive variety for many producers.

Kweli® produces round fruit with a beautiful raspberry colour. The fruit can be harvested fairly easily and release more readily when picked later in the day. The raspberries are dry, have a good flavour and an excellent shelf life. Partly because the fruit only darkens slowly after harvest, a shelf life of 10 days or more is the rule rather than the exception. Kweli® is suitable for growing in moderate and Mediterranean climates. Since Kweli® tolerates high temperatures very well, this variety is also frequently used in dry tropical climates.
