HM.CLAUSE, incombustible in melons

It is extending its range with a mini piel de sapo for export and the yellow Jandaia for Murcia and La Mancha

HM.Clause is a worldwide reference in Galia, Yellow, Charentais… type melons and it is continuing its line of work concentrating on the flavour and the search for materials that are suitable for export, such as the mini calibres. This year, the company is presenting an important new product on this point: CLX;MPQ51. It is a piel de sapo weighing between 1.5-2 kg for medium transplanting in Murcia and Castilla-La Mancha. A solution that maintains the line of flavour and crunchy texture and that, at the same time, brings the calibre demanded by the foreign markets, along with an exceptional aroma. Manuel Ruiz Ayala, head of Development for Spain and Portugal, emphasises its good yield and its complete package of resistances, without forgetting its external appearance, with “an attractive grooving and a reasonably dark colour.”

Also for medium-late cycle in Murcia and La Mancha this year, they are presenting a new yellow melon, Jandaia (1.3-1.8 kg). This material stands out due to the robustness, the quite smooth, pine nut- shape of the fruit and the ease of identifying the cutting point.

Alongside the new products, this year HM.CLAUSE is underscoring another milestone: the 15th anniversary of Valverde. An ‘incombustible’ piel de sapo that continues to lead its segment. To celebrate this, the company has held a draw with a trip to El Rocío as the first prize.

On the other hand, the semi-long life galia melons, Mistral and Terral continue to take over surface area in Almeria. And in watermelons, they continue promoting Casilda, initially proposed for greenhouse growing, but which is working so well in the open air that sales are growing in this type of crop. This shiny black seedless watermelon, with a weight ranging between 5 and 8 kg and with crunchy flesh, provides homogeneous, high yield productions.
