A suitable pollinator must be inter-planted at a recommended ratio of 3:1 in the main season, when the conditions are favourable. In the early season and periods of difficult pollination, it is advisable to plant at a ratio of 2:1. Consult our seedless production guidelines for further information.

Features & Benefits:

FASHION is early maturing with good yield. The fruit is medium to large round, with uniform shape and size. The flesh has deep red colour, firm texture, excellent flavour, and high brix. Uniformity of fruit size make it well suited to retailing as whole fruit, as well as half- and quarter-cuts. The unique rind colour is an attractive contrast to the red flesh.
