After several years of testing in our orchards, we have found no damage from frost or sunburn. SnapDragon®
is a regular strong bloomer, but also thins itself.
We have already made very good results after ULO removal also with SmartFresh™. I was convinced by the apple as it stores very well and thus contributes to a long sales period.
Our growing experience shows that we can produce very homogeneous smooth fruit with SnapDragon®.
The tree is easy to raise and cultivate. SnapDragon®
is a medium sized fruit, with smooth skin, similar
ripening time as Jonagold. 80-90% pack-out.
The apple tastes right off the tree.
By tasting with customers in our farm-gate marketing, we can quickly determine the market value of a new variety. Over 500 tasting results from customers in our farm gate sales show that SnapDragon® is particularly well received by young customers and young families.
A very important and interesting target group! Over 50% of customers wanted to buy SnapDragon®. Customers are convinced by the unique crunchiness of the apple.
A very juicy, sweet, slightly aromatic apple.
A close and constructive cooperation with the American licensor PVM was agreed with Exklusive Hofsorten GmbH. The brand logo was adopted unchanged from the
American US brand. SnapDragon® is a completely
developed brand with years of cultivation and marketing experience.
