Since the launch of rose Tacazzi+ in 2015 several mutants have made it to become a full member of the Tacazzi+ family. So, what does the whole family look like these days, with the arrival of the latest variety Red Tacazzi+? Let's find out.

It started With Cerise

Technically, it is very difficult to breed from dark to light. This means that a cerise rose like Tacazzi+ will almost certainly not get a white or yellow sibling in the course of time. But, as nature is sometimes unpredictable, you'll never know...

Mutants

After breeder Dümmen Orange successfully set out the original Tacazzi+ to growers in Kenya and Ethiopia, the search begins for variations in its colors. There are two ways to get another color; through product development with the breeder, or by mere luck with the grower. Luck means that in a whole greenhouse one single flower decides to NOT become the planned color. This is called a 'mutant'. With Red Tacazzi+, for instance, grower Holla Roses noticed the red mutant amongst his Pink Tacazzi+ roses. He brought the mutant to the breeder, who carefully (there is only one stem of it yet!) starts to see if this mutant can be replicated and multiplied, or if it goes back to its original color, undoing its mutation. Can you imagine the thrill of this discovery process?
