OUTSTANDING QUALITIES

  • EXCELLENT UNIFORMITY
  • WIDELY ADAPTED
  • HIGH YIELD POTENTIAL
  • GOOD HEAT AND COLD TOLERANCE
  • VERY GOOD HOLDING ABILITY

Over the years, Conquistador has developed a remarkable track record of superb performance becoming the leading variety in Southern Africa.  Conquistador is very widely adapted and an easy to grow hybrid.  Plants are large, very vigorous and wrapper leaves cover the heads very well.  Heads are uniform and very firm.  Field holding ability after maturity and the ability to withstand cracking are excellent resulting in its use as an over wintering variety in many areas.  Heads have a deep blue-green colour and an excellent flavour.  Conquistador is widely used as both a bagging and hawker cabbage.  It is a favourite with hawkers due to the large plant, wrapper leaves, head size, sweet taste and excellent shelf life.  Conquistador has intermediate resistance to Fusarium yellows (Foc).

SPECIAL VARIETAL REQUIREMENTS

  • Conquistador is able to tolerate both heat in summer and the cold throughout the winter months very well
  • Highly suited to the cooler times of the year – should ideally mature into autumn and early winter in cool areas and through winter in frost-free areas
  • Cold tolerance is excellent. However, heads should be mature before the first frost occurs
  • Contact area representative for a sowing guide
