This week Arnold Viljoen and Andrê Agenbag, TopFruit Agronomists, visited Namibia to follow up on the harvest activities. They report: “The current river levels are still high and entail numerous challenges such as positioning of irrigation pumps, fortunately, so far the producers have managed to overcome these conditions very well”.
Andrê Agenbag recounts: “The producers are currently at the peak of the ARRA Sweeties™ harvest and the crops look extraordinary.
90% of ARRA Mystic Bloom™ has been harvested already and the quality is superb”.
Andrê Agenbag continues: “The production this year is very good, and the ARRA varieties stood out once again and exceeded our expectations”.

Boasting an alluring cherry colour, impressive size, abundant production, and a perfect balance of taste and crunch, ARRA Cherry Crush creates a mutually beneficial scenario for discerning producers, consumers, and retailers.”

Start the season with a Kiss
This year, attendees got a firsthand look at ARRA Fire Kiss™ in Egypt. What stood out was how distinctly different it was from the Flame, leaving no doubt that it is the perfect Flame replacement.
