Pome | Stone | Table Grapes

At Culdevco we optimised our evaluation procedures to more accurately identify and evaluate stone fruit,
pome fruit, and table- and raisin grape cultivars, that are easy to grow with low risk to the growers.
These cultivars are also easy to sell on all markets. Culdevco continues to make use of experienced
evaluators, technical advisors, producers and other independent third party organisations to further
assist it in identifying cultivars that will keep all its clients ahead of their competitors.
