    – protected variety, Head Licence: Darbonne, Frankreich

    Daroyal® is a cross-breed (Elsanta x Parker) from Darbonne’s breeding programme. Daroyal® ripens three to five days earlier than Hon­eoye. Attrac­­­tively shaped fruits of large to very large size characte­rise this variety. The fruit colour is a glossy red to dark red. Yields are good or even excellent. Every single fruit can be picked and sold (unlike Honeoye where at least 30% of the last fruits remain unpicked due to their small size and poor fla­vour).

    The fruits are best marketed on the day they are picked, because they have a tendency to darken in the cold storage. Daroyal® is fine for selling at market stalls as well as for pick-your-own plantations.

    Daroyal® is a vigorous, robust variety that does fine on plots with­out crop rotation. Unlike Honeoye, it is very resistant to Verticillium. Earlier cultivation with fleece material or plastic film is possible and promising (see test results). Daroyal® produces very long spadices (similar to Dar­se­lect®) and should be planted in protected sites.

    Daroyal® is sig­ni­ficantly superior to the currently favoured early-season Honeoye in terms of ripening period, taste, fruit size and plant health.
    Daroyal® ist der Frühsorte Honeoye in Bezug auf Reifezeit, Geschmack, Fruchtgröße und Gesundheit (z.B. Verticillium) deutlich überlegen.
