Variety - Hidden Valley A422
This page on Interpreting Varieties Pages provides information on the terms used below.
At this stage A403 & A422 will be South African releases only. The reason is that while they have performed well in trials, both late season harvest. Australia has recently added several new varieties with this trait in the last few years, so the market for them is probably already satisfied.
However, if there are Australian growers who would like to plant these trees, contact us and if enough are interested we can make them available.
