Fred van Paassen to grow Pina Colada
After growing the Bacardi white single-flowered spray chrysanthemums for 12 years, Master Grower Fred van Paassen will now grow Pina Colada. Under the VannoVa brand, Fred will supply 250,000 stems every week as of week 42.
It is a big step to grow a different variety after 12 years. However, Fred and his son Jan are confident that the snow white decorative spray chrysanthemum will do well on the market.
Fred: “We would like to thank all our buyers for the good cooperation during our Bacardi era. We see the Pina Colada as a great addition to the VannoVa collection and we will do anything it takes to live up to our reputation and present this variety as a reliable high quality product.”
Bacardi will continue to be part of the VannoVa collection. As of week 42, Master Grower Ed van Paassen, who recently joined the team, will supply 140,000 stems of the usual high quality VannoVa Bacardi stems.
