Known for its short interval between the first and second crop with zero chill requirements, Zawadi is an excellent choice for growers seeking a consistent double cropping season.
Zawadi is characterized by its vigor, thriving particularly well in soil and showing even better results in hydroponics. It produces abundant mid-length laterals and has a natural tendency to branch.
The fruits of Zawadi are notable for their conical shape and light red colour, which remains consistent even after harvest. The size and flavour profile of the fruits are equally appealing.
Harvesting Zawadi is efficient, thanks to the fruit’s clear display on the canes. Beyond ease of picking, this variety stands out for its high-yield potential – yielding up to 30 tons/ha per crop. Expect harvest readiness 18 to 20 weeks after planting, fitting well into a mid-season production schedule.
