SPOPPO (Protected by CPV Rights)
SPOPPO which has HK35 in its genealogy, offers the huge advantage of not producing spores. This prevents lung-related health problems amongst pickers and prevents the spread of infection by spores. It can be grown in similar conditions to those recommended for HK35. It is not as sensitive to extreme conditions or condensation compared with related strains. Colour is cream/light grey to dark brown/ dark grey mainly depending on the air temperature, compost temperature, humidity and the level of evaporation.
