Faith is a late variety from the breeding programme of Goossens Flevoplant. The variety ripens about 7 – 10 days after Elsanta and is therefore located in the interesting ripening period directly before Malwina. Faith convinces with big, conically shaped, firm fruits. The colour is medium-red with an attractive gloss. The yield is high. The fruits are big with high individual fruit weights.
Altogether Faith is a fruit with a good taste and a very nice presentation in punnet. Well branched infructescences with big fruits facilitate the yield, so that very high picking rated can be reached.
Faith is a very vigorous variety that should be planted with a wider plant distance. It flourishes for a long period and therefore ensures a steady, long yield. Faith can be strohverspätet very well.
Faith is not very prone to mildew and botrytis, but should be protected against phythophthora cactorum. A preventive treatment with the usual supplements (phosphorous acid) is recommended. During our experiments Faith has not been very sensitive to rain.
Faith is the late variety between Sonata and Malwina that both convinces with a good taste and a very nice presentation in punnet. It is very well suited for direct marketing as well as for retail sector marketing.
