Despite extreme hot temperatures last week in Israel, Danziger’s breeding facility retained its color and vibrancy

It’s not magic, its our genetics – make it work for you today!

“When it comes to understanding how well a variety can tolerate extreme heat and dryness, there’s no substitute for seeing what happens during a really hot spell. That’s exactly what we got the chance to witness last week and the results were very satisfying. It gave us the opportunity to see the progress in developing more heat tolerance varieties in a real-life and real-time situation. Our flowers survived wonderfully, the flowering was amazing, ” said Amir Zuker, R&D Director responsible for perennials, annuals and cut flower breeding and research at Danziger.
