- HIGH YIELD POTENTIAL
- EXCELLENT STORAGE LIFE
- DARK GREEN FRUIT COLOUR
Smarag is a Cucurbita pepo gem-squash which has become a standard in this class. In many gem-squash producing areas, Smarag is being used as a direct replacement for Rolet with trial and field plantings indicating the possibility of a 30 % increase in yield. Vines are extremely vigorous and fruit size is better than that of Rolet. Production in winter in sub-tropical areas is very successful. The fruit retain the dark green colour longer than Rolet and the flavour is considered superior. The fruit is a globe shape and very dark green in colour. Smarag is widely adapted and is generally used as mature gem squash, but can also be used as baby and young gems.
