2018 is the year that the early ARRA™ table grape varieties are starting to appear in volume in the marketplace. These early varieties, unique to the ARRA programme, are the result of ARD breeder Shachar Karniel’s foresight. Years ago Shachar anticipated the need to replace existing early varieties like Flame and Perlett that were deemed no longer suitable due to their considerable production costs and high maintenance requirements.
Among the early ARRA varieties that are making their mark, ARRA 29 and ARRA 30 are commercialized worldwide.
During the August field days, they will also present a new line of muscat varieties and mid to late season varieties.
The ARRA table grape line is also expanding in mid and late ARRA varieties to meet demands of the marketplace.
