Salsa is a late June bearer that comes into production about one week after Sonata. Strong properties are its good flavour, in combination with late harvest, very good yield and very large, orange-red fruits. Additionally, Salsa is minimally sensitive to mildew and wilt. This makes the variety useful in areas not suitable for many other varieties. Salsa is grown successfully in open field cultivation in central and northern European countries where the focus is on companies with direct sales.
