Tuccadona RZ is one of our first varieties to combine the benefits of Knox™, a naturally occurring trait that can delay the pinking of cut leaf surfaces, to offer improved shelf life. Tuccadona RZ is described as an ‘open-heart’ type that performs well especially during the warmer harvesting periods due to its strength against tip burn. While slightly slower to mature as compared to other varieties, the value of Knox™ makes Tuccadona RZ an important addition especially for processors demanding the very best quality leaves.
- Large open hearrted cos from the Knox™ range; delayed pinking offers improved shelf life
