These valuable varieties are from a breeding program headed by Hans-Joachim Albrecht in Berlin. Beginning in 1971, he selected and hybridized these varieties from plants growing in regions around the Baltic Sea. They are well adapted to continental and coastal climates and have been producing good crops for us for many years.
This new hybrid of Siberian and German parents is a great variety for the home garden. Early ripening and attractive, Sirola™ bears abundant crops of bright red-orange, large and unusually sweet fruit. Sirola™ is good for fresh eating and makes a tasty juice, especially when mixed with Leikora, Orange Energy® or another more acidic variety.
