As it has been published in our social networks, from Capital Genetic – CapGenSeeds we are preparing several important releases of horticultural varieties. Today we will talk about a very special tomato.
We call it a blocky tomato because of its shape so similar to a California bell pepper. Its shape is so similar to the California bell pepper that, if it were not for the characteristic stalk that the tomatoes have, we would not be able to differentiate it at first sight.
We have never seen anything like this before and part of the investment that Capital Genetic – CapGen Seeds is making in research, development and innovation is not only dedicated to the improvement and breeding of conventional plants with the aim of a higher fruit production, a better resistance package, a more durable conservation, easier handling … but also seeks to have an impact on the agri-food sector with the intrusion of innovative species, as is the case of this variety of tomato with the shape of a bell pepper.
We can see in the photos that the plant is loaded with tomatoes, that it has bunches of seven to eight tomatoes and that the tomatoes have a GG-GGG caliber.
Some marketing companies have already shown interest in the Blocky tomato because they see it as a great business opportunity due to its presentation. They talk about being able to stuff it like a bell pepper, even creating a new tomato segment for the end consumer. Growers are also showing great interest in the variety, because of its innovation and the projection it can achieve in the market.
The breeders and the development team continue to work with great passion for the variety, which, despite being quite advanced in its development, still has some aspects to be tested, such as its behavior in different planting zones and some resistances.
Currently, the Blocky tomato variety is not for sale yet, but will soon be available for trials. We are working very carefully and meticulously on every detail to make it a variety with consistent results and a high quality crop.
Those of us lucky enough to have been able to try it, can say that the blocky tomato has nothing to envy to any other tomato, it has an excellent brightness, it is very fleshy and has a unique flavor.
The Blocky tomato is one of the many tomato research programs added to the Capital Genetic – CapGen Seeds portfolio. We have an important market share in tomato cultivation thanks to the results that are offering varieties such as pear tomato Obelix or canary tomato Tolentina.
