Vic Secret

DESCRIPTION

The story of Vic Secret goes back to the year 2000: it was planted as a seedling and advanced through the breeding programme with great strides until the moment everyone had been waiting for finally arrived with its release in 2010. This cultivar has been in commercial production since 2013 but was, for a long time, an insider’s tip, as its name suggests. Its aroma profile is strongly characterised by green fruits, such as gooseberries and quince, sweet candied fruits, citrus notes of grapefruit and red berries, such as strawberries.
