Over these four campaigns, the company has established its position among the top flight of companies for seeds. Indeed, Top Seeds is one of the most innovative companies in genetics in the world. Top Seeds Ibérica only sells its own genetic products. Over these years, the company has established a privileged position in Californian peppers with completely innovative varieties that are very resistant and versatile, performing far above the average varieties that have existed until now. In 2017, they released a new red California variety onto the market called “Galiano”, characteristic for being fairly late, very balanced with no great leaps in setting and a high yield. Francisco Maleno himself, the director of Top Seeds Ibérica, comments on what 2017 holds for the company:
“Fortunately, this campaign is going to be exceptional for Top Seeds Ibérica’s pepper varieties since they are giving superior quality yields. Furthermore, 2017 will be the year when new tomato varieties will be launched onto the market. They are the result of four years of intense work preparing a very competitive catalogue. We do not move into the market just to remain halfway up the table.”
This year, the company will complete its tomato cherry portfolio with exceptional varieties in all segments: vine tomato cherry with Golan and Caprice; pear tomato with Parisi; yellow cherry tomato with Mini-on; zebra cherry tomato with Zohar and Lotz; and this year they will also launch two absolutely new varieties: a black cherry and an orange one. Maleno affirms that the traders and supermarkets who are trying them fully approve of them. Finally, for the black-topped tomato, 2017 will be the year of the Salmeron, which promises to revolutionise the market. It is a black top never before seen that is productive, resistant and has an incredible colour and taste that will be difficult to match.
