Origin of the selection: identified by G. Zuccherelli in 1985 in Gatteo (FC) on material from New Zealand. It’s an Hayward clone that replaced the standard Hayward. K5 has been multiplied in vitro for over 35 years. Its diffusion is now generalized. The main differences from the standard Hayward are: more regular shape, cylindrical ellipsoidal round in cross section, slightly more elongated in vertical section, deeper apical nipple, longer petiole. RIPENING TIME: the fruit can be ready a week before Hayward. Some new commercially available Hayward clones (and others being tested in our fields) have been identified in Hayward K. plants.
