Cauliflower is an open field crop grown in a lot of different environments. Every environment and market has its own requirements. Breeding activities in several countries – such as the Netherlands, France, Italy, Germany, Australia and the USA – help Enza Zaden to adapt its varieties to the conditions of the main production regions.
Our caulilfower breeding activities focus primarily on the fresh market, processing market and the novelties. The fresh market is a stable market worldwide. The processing market, on the other hand, is a growing market, especially in Northern Europe and America. The novelties include Romanesco, a green and a purple cauliflower. In recent years, the Romanesco and purple types are gaining in popularity, not only in the processing industry but also from consumers. After several years of R&D activities in cauliflower, Enza Zaden is proud to introduce the first range of products for these different markets.
For information about our wide range of varieties, please take a look at our local websites (Spain, Italy, Mexico, Germany, France, USA, UK, Morocco, Brazil, Russia, The Netherlands) or contact your local Enza Zaden representative.
