Possible actions to influence the performance:
- Do a small trial (50 plants) to learn more about the crop performance for professional growers.
- Pinch the plant above the third true leaf. This creates a better container coverage/ enlarges the crop time.
- Plant 3 young plants/sow 4 seeds in 1 plug for 1 large container. This fills out the container faster
- Feed the plant one a week minimum and water them regularly; a lot of fruits takes a lot of fertilisation.
- Grafting with the right rootstock will increase vigour and speed of the plant and fruit set.
- For our clients and press publications we have a specific crop description and HR pictures available
