Southern Fruit Research Institute is about to bring out a new seed – free variety of sweet orange.


This new variety was discovered 3 years ago in an orchard in Cai Lay district, Tien Giang Province.

After a time of test experiment, scientists of the Institute agreed that it always gives seed – free fruit in any growing conditions and fruit quality is better than that of other varieties grown over the Mekong River Delta.

Recently, the institute has prepared for getting permission from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development in order to produce the variety on large scale.
