What Makes a Great Warrior?

Battle the Odds with Ninja S10® and Samurai S10®

Ninja S10® is a widely adapted, green-to-red bell pepper well suited for production where bacterial leaf spot is a concern and large size is appreciated. The maturity is mid-early, with very high yields of extra-large and jumbo fruit with good quality. Ninja S10® has potential for markets requiring mature red fruit where it has good color and good field holding potential, and boasts high resistance to TMV: 0 and intermediate resistance to Xcv: 0-10.

Samurai S10® is also a widely adapted, green-to-red bell pepper well suited for production where bacterial leaf spot is a concern. The maturity is early to mid-early, with high yields of extra-large fruit with good quality. Fruit has good size uniformity and are very firm, glossy dark green and mature to red color. The plants are mid-strong and vigorous with good fruit setting ability. Samurai S10® has high resistance to TMV: 0 and intermediate resistance to Xcv: 0-10.

“Our tried and true performers Classic, Red Bull and Double Up provide growers with dependability in delivering quality yields,” declares Western NAFTA Product Development Manager for pepper and tomatoes, Kimberly Kuden. “Growers can rely on Classic for that smooth, greenhouse quality fruit with thick walls and wide adaptability.” Plus, Classic offers high resistance to TMV: 0 and Xcv: 0-3, 7, 8.

But don’t forget Double Up – it provides growers with mid-early maturity, consistently high yield and has high resistance to TMV: 0 and Xcv: 0-3, 5, 7, 8. Seed of both products is available for immediate delivery and Sakata can respond quickly to spot orders for growers.

And… Red Bull offers plants with excellent canopies. This variety produces strong heavy sets of four-lobed, large fruit that are blocky, smooth and very thick walled. Red Bull has high resistance to TMV: 0 and Xcv: 0-3, 7, 8.
