Origin & Breeding History: 'Bozak' originated from a controlled cross conducted in the summer of 2011 at the Enza Zaden Research and Development Station in Enkhuizen, Netherlands. The cross was made between two unnamed proprietary seedlings. In 2012, 'Bozak' was identified and included in hybrid screening trials at the Enza Zaden Research and Development Station and further trialed in the Netherlands and Canada. Selection was based on uniform fruit, yield and taste.
