Cyclamen Masako, distributed by Schoneveld Breeding and grown by the Italian company Floricoltura Chiara, has won the Top Product Showcase at MyPlantandGarden 2018 in Milan. Masako has been crowned the winner because of the number of flowers, a very long shelf life and the unique shape of flowers compared to other Cyclamen. Masako is a double-flowered Cyclamen with a unique flower shape born from tissue culture.
After many years of hard work Kanazawa, a Japanese breeder, has created this double-ﬂowered Cyclamen. Schoneveld Breeding from the Netherlands has the exclusive distribution rights of this product in Europa. Schoneveld Breeding has entered into a partnership with Floricoltura Chiara, where they are engaged in the cultivation of Masako. Masako was launched commercially in 2017.
