Identifying Long-Lasting Cut Carnation Varieties


Identifying Long-Lasting Cut Carnation Varieties


Cut flower varieties within a species will vary not only in their flower color and flower size but also in how long they last. Besides providing proper care, e.g., temperature control and ethylene-free environments, the genetic make-up of a plant is one of the leading factors that determine postharvest performance. With the yearly introduction of new carnation varieties every year, it is important to test their postharvest performance. Identifying high performing, long-lasting varieties is critical to improve quality and performance of cut flowers.
