Welcome to Directorate of Arecanut and Spices Development


This is a clone obtained from root suckers that have dark green, highly aromatic, shining leaves. It is sensitive to low temperature in the winter season and hence the bud burst is poor during winter. The leaves are dark green, shiny and highly quality, and made into dry powder. The plant could be trained to grow as a low bush. This variety is resistant to Cylindrosporium leaf-spot.
