The range includes most varieties of berries: raspberries, Cassis, currants, grapes, blueberries… They were selected for their resistance to drought, disease, their taste qualities and for their large fruits.

A variety resistant to diseases, especially scab, it is also suitable for eco-gardeners who are looking for trees requiring little treatment. It produces a large fruit, two-colored, brick red. Slightly tart, crunchy, with a semi-fine texture and good firmness, it can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 months.

Another novelty to discover, at Botanic, a apricot with red epidermis, resulting from more than 8 years of research in the trial orchards of Darnaud nurseries. It is self-fertile, therefore of high and regular productivity, and suitable for all regions. The flesh of its fruits is light yellow, fragrant when ripe.
