CROKINI resistant to mildew, an agronomic and natural response to the LABBE Law

CROKINI, a cherry tomato offered by CLAUSE Home Garden, is resistant (IR*) to tomato mildew, a frequent and devastating garden disease. It provides a clear response to the LABBE Law

Cherry on top – in addition to being delicious, sweet, and productive, CROKINI is resistant (IR*) to mildew!

We continue to be amazed! Noted for the quality of its plant and unique taste, this varietyhas now revealed one of its secrets: its resistance to tomato mildew (IR*: Pi, Phytophthora infestans), one of the most devastating garden diseases. This disease is caused by a fungus that appears first on the stem and leaves, before contaminating the entire fruit. Mildew spreads particularly well in warm and humid climates and attacks most tomato varieties during the summer. The use of varieties resistant to mildew, such as CROKINI, is one response to the LABBE law which, since 1 January 2019, prohibits the use of synthetic pesticides in gardens. CROKINI is the agronomic answer to ‘natural gardening’.
