Shume Sweet is developped after many years studies of local populations from the North-Eastern region of Bulgaria. Assessment and selection of perspective progenies were carried out for consolidation of stabilized population with high productivity of stem mass in technical maturity as a row material for extraction of juice with 11-15% of sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose. The preliminary tests in comparative variety trials confirm the high and stable productive potential for extraction of juice with optimal qualities for production of concentrated sweet syrops. After tests in the system of IASAS the Shoumen Sweet variety has been certified by the agency in 2020.
