Kapiteyn breeding

Since we like to be at the forefront of new developments, we have been engaged in propagating all kinds of crops for the past 30 years in order to offer an exclusive assortment to Growers, Breeders and Retailers.

Calla Captain Calla
Kapiteyn is the Captain in Calla. All the varieties from the Kapiteyn nursery start with the name Captain. Captain Calla has now become a well-known brand among Callas worldwide.

Tulip Growers’ Association Remarkable
Through Remarkable we have been engaged in the propagation, cultivation, exploitation and marketing of new Tulips since 1996. Major varieties such as Milkshake and Dutch Design come from our Nursery.

Hyacinth Growers’ Association Orientalis
Since 1987, we have been developing the most magnificent Hyacinths together with Fa. P.A. de Groot and Rooijakkers Breezand. Our relationships focus on cultivation, efficiency and forcing possibilities. It is always a wonderful challenge, particularly with the yellow, orange and red varieties. Of course the basic values such as sturdy stems are never subordinate here.

Lily Growers’ Association Marklily
Through a strong partnership with 14 Growers, Marklily has more than proven itself with major varieties such as Robina, Marlon, Evelyne and Indian Summerset. Each and every variety has been successful in production as well as trade.

Product Development

“The latest Calla varieties can provide many more flowers than several years ago. When I first started with the propagation of Callas at Kapiteyn Breeding in 2000, the average production was 3 to 4 flowers per tuber. Now, the varieties we sell on the market produce an average of 8 to 10 flowers. Many varieties that have been added in recent years are particularly suitable for potted culture with multiple shoots and are genetically short.”
