Syngenta Flowers, Inc.
Home and Garden Vegetables
Syngenta Flowers is committed to introduce into the home and garden
market, varieties that will enhance the consumer’s vegetable garden
experience. We are doing this through advancements in quality, flavor,
attractiveness, productivity, and superior disease resistance packages that
improve overall plant performance.
It doesn’t stop there! Food gardeners will be thrilled with the bountiful
harvests that these varieties will generate all season long. With today’s
smaller space gardens, performance really does matter. Our modern
genetics provide the “work horses” needed to feed a family from a smaller
garden than our grandparents maintained.
Whether your customer is just beginning to grow vegetables or the veteran
gardener seeking “new” and intriguing varieties to expand their garden and
culinary experience, our newest introductions into the home and garden
markets will have them coming back for repeat sales in future years.

A classic French hybrid developed
especially for eating fresh off the vine

Mid-season maturity produces 5-7 ounce
medium/large fruit
This sweet and juicy traditional beauty has
a wonderfully rich and balanced ‘tomatoey’

travel well for commercial producers
Carmello will ripen to a beautiful crimson red
