During the 2019 Fruit Logistica in Berlin, we will present 'Purple Power' - attractive vegetables with a high level of nutrients, along with organic lettuce varieties, B-Mox seed enhancing formula -“A strong start for every seedling”, plus a number of inspiring vegetable food concepts such as Kohrispy, Coolwrap, Cool carrot candy, Krunchelly and Delicioni. At this international trade fair for fruit and vegetables, Bejo demonstrates that traditional vegetables are increasingly developing into healthy, trendy food.
Attractive vegetables with a high level of nutrients. Purple varieties are not only characterised by their beautiful colour but also the high concentration of nutrients which provide important health benefits.
Varieties such as the purple sprouting broccoli Burgundy, a variety with an almost ten times greater value of vitamins and antioxidants than traditional broccoli, the red beet Manzu and the Purple Sun carrot will be displayed.
Coolwrap is a specifically selected flat white cabbage. With its shape, it provides leaves suitable for creating wraps, sushi and lasagna. Coolwrap is gluten-free and suitable for a low-carb diet.
The cabbage stays crisp and fresh for a long time and has a mild flavour.
RIGHT from the START
Sustainable cultivation with a high yield, exceptional product quality and - ultimately - healthy and tasty food; it all starts with the best organic seeds of the best varieties RIGHT from the START
Bejo has expanded its broad organic assortment even further this year by adding lettuce. First to be introduced are well-known, high-performing varieties that are popular in Western Europe: Times, Rumours (Iceberg), Antedis, Malis (Butterhead) en Agribel, Sementel (Batavia). These varieties display strong resistance to downy mildew (Bl:16-35EU) and lettuce aphids (Nr:0) and have shown outstanding results in the market. Effective resistance is extremely important for lettuce growers in general and is essential for organic growing. With these new additions to our organic range, Bejo gives growers the option of working even more sustainably by using seed that is organic.
