Vor drei Jahren machte ich aus Spass ein paar Kreuzungen von gelben Cherries und der Sorte Gerippte-BührerKehl.

F1, also die erste Kreuzungsgeneration, macht nicht soviel her. Geschmacklich gut, aber eine einfache rote Cherrie.

F2 letztes Jahr, spaltet sich dann wieder in gelbe und rote und dieses Jahr sehe ich auch die Form der BührerKehl wieder. Jetzt aber in gelb.

Hier ein paar Bilder mit was die F3 alles überraschen:

Generell ist im Moment gerade gutes Tomatenwetter. Die Zwergtomaten kommen kaum nach mit Blühen und Fruchten.

Aber auch im Freiland zeigen sich erste Resultat. Hier sieht man gerade wie ich Verhindere das die Hummel mir meine krautfäuletoleranten Sorten wieder durcheinandern bringen:

Wenn alles klappt sollte es auch bald gestreifte Sorten für den Gartenanbau ohne Abdeckung geben.

Zum Abschluss noch ein Bild wie unser Webmaster sich in die Unbilden der Natur wagt und unter Linden und Kiwis ausruht.

is a small plant breeding company in Switzerland on the border of the canton Zürich and canton Aargau and Germany to the north.
We work mainly with wild and domesticated tomatoes and potatoes and some additional vegs. Our goal is to breed varieties that are more resistant to pests and have a health benefit.
We specially work on «Functional Food» with higher levels of anthocyanins and carotenoids because of their cancer benefits.
Our varieties are breed mainly for the Organic and Permaculture market but that does not exclude them from being grown conventionally too.
We offer our clients adapted exclusive potato varieties that can be named and marketed under their own name. This applies mainly to the Swiss market.

Because plant breeding needs a broad base of varieties to work with, we have a big collection of several hundred old and special accession we work with collected by ProSpecieRara and other European seed saver organisations as well as from collections like Gartersleben or Wageningen. Those are used as parents for our breeding projects and we hand out samples of those to interested parties for a contribution towards expenses in small quantities. If you are interested in those varieties, please inform us before we start harvesting end of August, so we can take some aside for you. The full list what's normally available is here. and the order slip here.

In the tomato area we offer some standard varieties, and additionally varieties with high anthocyanin levels too, those have a black-aubergine coloured skin. The inside of those tomatoes can be white, yellow, red or brown depending on the wish of the customer.

Additionally, we are specialists for alternative and marginalized crops and how to grow them in temperate climates and like to help with forest garden projects specially in regard to permaculture too.
Due to our good interconnectedness with other experts in the field we are able to find and get even exotic plants and would love to design a project for you with those plants too!
