Our fruit varieties

Yellow flesh nectarines

Floyd ZAIGER was a pioneer in the development of an strong stone fruit genetic pool. BIG TOP® is certainly his most famous achievement, the most well-known variety, which started to be propagated in Montélimar in 1984. Still in production, it is also used as a variety genitor for many modern early, mid-season or late varieties. ZAIGER GENETICS is at the origin of a second revolution with the development of the HONEY fruit series, and the HONEY ZEE® trademark is already famous amongst the European buyers. On this Internet site, you will find all information related to this fruit group and how to grow the different varieties now available to all fruit growers.
