Origin & Breeding History: 'NPCW04095' originated from a cross pollination between proprietary seedlings, conducted in 1999 in Stuttgart, Germany. Seedlings were selected in the summer of 2000 based on bract size, bract colour, bract shape, leaf quality and branching characteristics. The selected seedling was grafted in 2001 to promote branching and the new variety was assessed for plant vigour and postharvest characteristics.
Tests & Trials: The detailed description is based on the UPOV (International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants) report of Technical Examination, Community Plant Variety Office reference number 2004/2548, grant number 18433, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences, in 2005.
