What growers say...

''I love the Multistar RZ F1. It is very different from the normal cucumber varieties. I love the color and how it shines. I also love the rainy season tomato Gamhar RZ F1. It was super productive despite the heavy rain fall. The fruits were very big and firm. We also used the yellow habanero Loleza RZ F1, so productive and pungent!''
Jennifer Alao, Belle Farms, Barkin Ladi, Plateau State, Nigeria
''I never made so much money as with the Rijk Zwaan tomato variety Jarrah RZ F1. It was just amazing. When the traders came they sought me out and wanted to buy first my tomatoes, because of the firmness and shelf life''
Robert Aloyce Mbula, Morogoro - Tanzania
“Growing cucumbers and the results have been nothing short of exceptional. One thing we have never compromise on has been using the best quality seeds and that has been Rijk Zwaan from the start. Together with agronomic support from the distributor.  The results have been exceptional. Choosing to stay with RIJK ZWAAN seeds has been one of the best decisions we ’ve made as a company in achieving the best output and yields.”
Nana Newton, Yensiso - Ghana
