Introduction

On the way of development

 

In the past 25 years, all our activities have been aimed at serving the gardeners with competitive pepper hybrids and high quality seed. To this end, we have developed our seed plant from our own source only to meet the strictest requirements and thanks to our latest investment, more than one hectare of our Szentes cultivation experiments and breeding works are taking place.

Thanks to our continuous development and investment, we have grown from a family business to a seed company with a young team.

In addition to make our variety experiments and program more accurate and faster, we try to pay special attention to our customers, from the purchase of seed through cultivation to the last harvests. To this end, our sales team and specialists strive for a live connection with as many gardeners who produce peppers as possible.

Over the years so far, thousands of gardeners have honored with their trust and chosen our pepper hybrids. We are working to thank you for the trust you have placed in us and we hope that in the future, the seeds of the Duna-R will reach even more pepper growers. 

For the first time on the world we have managed to breed such white conical pepper hybrids, which contains the highest resistance package ever. Zentus F₁ is resistant to the following virus: tobacco mosaic virus, tomato bronze spot, powdery mildew and cucumber mosaic virus. Our Kobalt F₁ variety also has nematode resistance in additon to the previously mentioned ones.

In the year of 2020, our offer was expanded with two new types. Dála F₁ from Sweet long type (resistant to HR TM2, IR TSWV and IR Ma / Mi / Mj) and Bercel F₁ from Dulce Italiano type from green to red (HR Tm2 and IR TSWV resistant) and Firtos F₁ from green to orange (IR TSWV resistant) peppers with hybrids.

Many had a negative experience when they chose a non-resistant variety at the time of type selection and start it for cultivation with hybrids without virus resistance. Due to the changeable weather, those working with susceptible breeds had to face extreme viral pressure in many places and the resulting significant economic damage. Based on these, it can be stated that in the future it is worthwhile to work safely only and exclusively with virus-resistant varieties. This was supported by Kárpát F₁,  Kapitány F₁, Kadet F₁ and Archivarius F₁ positive cultivation experiences of our kapia cultivars (which are HR Tm2 and IR TSWV resistant), so they got their well-deserved leading place at the hungarian kapia pepper market.

The sudden heavy rain and stormy wind caused serious problems at many places in the open field. These extreme conditions were endured primarily by those gardeners who have chosen varieties with strong roots and dense foliage. Last year, our tomato-shaped pepper Gogorez F₁ had an extraiordinary role, as well, which was visibly better tolerated by rainfalls and stormy wind than many other varieties. Due to its resistance to bacteria (Xanthomonas), first-class peppers were picked from many beautiful stocks even in the fall. One of our newest tomato-shaped variety, Rod F₁, which is also resistant to Xanthomonas and grows big, dark red fruits.

Duna-R Ltd. wishes you successful cultivation in the years 2021-2022, as well.
