Origin & Breeding History: 'Didi Chered' was developed by the breeder as part of a planned breeding program based on the pedigree system. The new variety originated from a cross made in March 2000 in Andijk, The Netherlands. The female parent was a red flowered seedling named IW-622-3 and the male parent was a cherry flowered seedling named IDS-47-5. The resultant F1 seed was sown in a greenhouse in July 2000. In September 2000, a single plant was selected by the breeder from the F1 progeny, based on flower colour, form and plant habit.
Tests & Trials: The detailed description is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, grant number 12272, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, in Angers, France. The trials were conducted in 2003 at the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany. All colour characteristics were determined using the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart, 2001 edition.
