During the open day on June 3 in its Tomato Experience Centre in ‘s-Gravenzande, De Ruiter Seeds showed its visitors as many as 350 different tomato varieties, mostly De Ruiter Seeds varieties.

“It offers the visitors the opportunity to compare results under similar growing conditions,” said Nico van Vliet, trade partnership manager for Benelux and Germany. Data was also shared on production progress and average weight.
