Eminent Seeds has been active in selection and breeding of tomatoes, sweet peppers and chilli peppers. Our breeding greenhouse at Eminent Seeds is formed by 4 different departments that are separately controlled for optimal conditions. In the chilli pepper department we are continuously improving and developing new varieties.
Each year we have two selection periods each of 5 months long where we select new lines and undertake hybrid crossings. The new hybrids are then sown and grown for a year to enable us to study them. We then undertake selection criteria and taste tests we also look at the time of yield, resistances and high production rate, good fruit forming, colour and the setting of the fruit. Seeds will only be produced from the best performing varieties after this first screening and thereafter sent around the world to growers for trials. The varieties for commercial introduction are then chosen by the grower.
The breeding program at Eminent Seeds for new chilli pepper varieties is the most extensive and professional in the world. This can be seen in the result of our new Habanero and Fresno chilli pepper All aspects of the market are taken into consideration when developing a new variety. That is why we are now striving to make each variety Resistant (Tm:0-3) with regard to the problem of a virus strain which is sweeping around the world. We will be shortly introducing a new Habanero line as well as a new Jalapeño chilli pepper. We are also excited about our other chilli pepper programmes in the pipe line.
