New variety for Africa

Using WorldVeg tomato breeding line AVTO1003 (CLN3125L), Rijk Zwaan Breeding B.V. developed a new semi-determinate plum tomato variety ‘Jarrah RZ F1 (71 102)’ specifically for the African market.

‘Jarrah’ has good vigor and canopy color, and produces firm fruit with uniform color, weighing 80-100 g. The variety is resistant to Tomato mosaic virus (ToMV) and Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV).

‘Jarrah’ is another example of how WorldVeg germplasm, breeding consortia, and collaborations in Africa and Asia benefit farmers and consumers!
