SUMMER 3373> Agronomical characteristics

SUMMER 3373 is the first and only early ripening kiwi variety world-wide, which was selected by means of a controlled cross-fertilization between Hayward and ML2 (a fruitful male). [see certificate].
The characteristics of this fruit are: a unique, less acidic, taste, a delicate flavour, the bright green colour of its pulp, and the higher content of mineral elements such as calcium and potassium. When fully ripe, it can reach a sugar degree of 18° Brix, but it is already very good with a sugar degree of 12-13° Brix.  This rapid accumulation of sugars allows to consume the product a few days after the harvest, unlike Hayward, whose transformation of sugars into starches lasts 2-3 months.

Technical notes (Ref. Hayward)

*Fruits harvested at 7° Brix from own-rooted plants.
