Marellesa is a variety obtained from the hybridization of Sarchimor and Caturra. It is sought after for its superior cup quality and its resistance to leaf rust.
Marsellesa matures more quickly with regards to both production and growth than either Caturra or Catuaí. It is also very resistant to rain during the harvest season, meaning that ripe cherries do not ‘drop’ at the first sign of thunder. This makes it suitable for harsh environments that experience heavy rains and/or strong winds and unpredictable weather conditions.
One of the most valued qualities of the variety is that it presents improved performance in conversion from cherry to green bean than either Catimor or Sarchimor.
