Origin & Breeding History: 'Eden Rosso' was bred and developed by the breeder, Obed J. Smit, in Sappemeer, Netherlands. It originated from a cross conducted in June 2010, between an unnamed variety of Peperomia marmorata, as the female parent, and an unnamed variety of Peperomia metallica, as the male parent. From the resulting progeny, 'Eden Rosso' was selected in August 2010, in Sappemeer, for its plant growth habit, leaf colour and leaf appearance. Asexual propagation of 'Eden Rosso' by vegetative cuttings was first conducted in September 2010, in Sappemeer, Netherlands.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Eden Rosso' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2011/2661, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, in Angers, France. The trial was conducted by the Naktuinbouw - Variety Centre, in Roelofarendsveen, Netherlands, in 2013. The colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
