“Because of the excellent market feedback and good perception of these grapes, TopFruit’s ARRA 33 vine orders skyrocketed to more than three times what was expected. We are currently working on ensuring that we have enough plant material for all. In these uncertain logistical times, excellent storage ability is going to play a critical role in the future when producers make decisions of which varieties to plant. ARRA 33 should be one of the varieties on top of that list, said van Vuuren.
ARRA 33 – ARRA Honey POP™ is part of only three ultra-early white varieties in South Africa and of these three, we believe that ARRA33 stands out above the rest because of its producer-friendly advantages.
“With factors such as a later bud break and flowering time ARRA 33– ARRA Honey POP™ is a labour and cost-friendly variety with high fertility and as we can see from this year, excellent storage ability,” says AJ Jansen van Vuuren, Table Grapes Manager at TopFruit.
ARRA 33 – ARRA Honey POP is an excellent early white seedless choice for producers.
