KAMINO (CF 955) is a new cauliflower variety with exceptional quality and high yielding potential for production through the summer months. KAMINO gave promising results in various trials transplanted from early November 2020 to early January 2021.

These trials were conducted in diverse, warm climatic conditions ranging from Uitenhage in the Eastern Cape, to Oudtshoorn, Riversdale, Kraaifontein and Klapmuts in the Western Cape. Advantages of KAMINO for the cauliflower farmer are the large frame size enhanced with its very good curd cover and a good curd tuck.

The pure white colour of the KAMINO curd is impressive and no riciness was observed. During the past summer, KAMINO had an average curd mass of 814g, compared to the average weight of 681g of the leading opposition variety. Days from transplant to maturity varied from 64 to 74 days over the different trials.

KAMINO is a low-risk variety suitable for various markets – whether prepacking, crating or processing. Seed availability will be limited during this semi-commercial launch phase.
