Origin & Breeding History: 'SBY281125' was selected in 1994 from the variety, 'Cadia' at the Seminis breeding station in El Ejido, Spain. Further selection continued from 1995-1998 in Honselersdijk, the Netherlands, where individual plant selections were made during the F2 to F7 generations based on self-pollinated plants. In 1998, seeds of a group of 10 F8 plants were bulked. This seed was used as Foundation Seed of 'SBY281125'. Selection criteria included Tobamo virus resistance, fruit setting potential, open plant type and fruit size, shape and uniformity.

Tests & Trials: Tests and trials for 'SBY291125' were conducted at Southern Bell Hydroponics in Leamington, Ontario during the winter of 2008. Twenty (20) plants of both the candidate and reference varieties were grown on rock wool hydroponic substrate, spaced 33 cm between plants in the row which were spaced 1.2 metres apart. Results of tests and trials were supported by the official Plant Breeders' Rights technical examination report, 2003/1790, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office.
