Allesbeste manages an outstanding breeding and selection program which enables new variety/cultivar development and improvement.
African Industry Development
Allesbeste Nursery has positioned itself as one of the key suppliers of avocado trees in Africa, with involvement in countries like Morocco, Tanzania, Kenya, Senekal, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland, Angola, as well as Egypt.
With the help of Dole Philippines, Allesbeste Nursery has been privileged to be involved in the development of the avocado industry in the Philippines.
First fruit have been evaluated from the trial blocks and all standards have been lived up to. Semi-commercial blocks will now be established. Maluma seems to be a late variety in New Zealand rather than early, which seems to be due to the cooler climate. First responses suggest that this rather suits this particular market.
Plant breeder's rights have been secured and semi-commercial plantings are under way with the first Maluma trees. Exciting rootstock comparisons will also be made as Maluma is being planted on numerous new rootstocks, including Bounty, Dusa, and Ashdot (a dwarfing rootstock).
United States of America
Plant breeder's rights have been approved and negotiations are underway to assign a market representative.
