Innovative breeding is part of our DNA, and as such our breeding teams are constantly working not only to improve existing varieties but also to bring to the market exiting new flowers. We have selected and bred a Marigold variety, the Marigold Xochi. It was selected under strong and rustic conditions ensuring an easy production of the variety and a reliable crop under adverse conditions. Because of its rusticity, Marigold Xochi also has stronger peduncles than normal that will permit you to produce bigger heads that won’t brake during shipping or when handled. Its size and color are perfectly stable, and it comes in the most popular Marigold color, orange.
This beautiful big head flower was named after the Nahuatl word “Xochitl” that means flower. The name honors its American origin and ancestral tradition. From the land of drums, ceremonies and ancestral rituals, where the force of nature and the magic of color are always present, the unique story of Marigold Xochi is born, a flower charged with energy, which carries the memory of the lands of South America to the rest of the world sharing their magic and wisdom to new cultures.
