Amarant Niwa

Amarant Niwa is a variety with higher healthiness compared to Elsanta, with fruits primarily suitable for direct consumption. It fruits in a moderately late period of traditional strawberry ripening. Plants are strong, producing many leaves, a moderate number of runners, and offshoots. The variety is characterized by high productivity. Compared to standard varieties such as Elsanta and Senga Sengana, higher fruit yields were obtained (higher share of marketable yield and lower incidence of gray mold). The fruits are very large or large, with a wide conical shape, firm texture, and delicate skin. They are very tasty and juicy, with the largest fruits typically having an air cavity. They also have a higher antioxidant content compared to the 'Senga Sengana’ variety. The variety is less susceptible to leaf diseases and root system diseases. Abundant foliage and short flower clusters protect the plants from late frosts. An increased sensitivity to herbicides has also been observed, similar to the Elsanta variety. From the experiments and production trials conducted so far, it can be inferred that Amarant Niwa could be a valuable variety for both dessert consumption (especially in the local market) and processing, particularly for concentrate production (high extract content – 10.6% Brix). Due to the difficulty in separating the fruits from the peduncle, it is less suitable for frozen product production. Single-row cultivation with complete fruit protection is recommended. Regular consumption of yellow raspberries alleviates symptoms of depression and mood swings.
