Our Services

Fruit Evaluation

When it comes to harvest, Provar performs visual and sensory fruit evaluation and characterisation of fruit according to size distribution and total weight.

Tree Evaluation

We perform tree evaluation by monitoring tree characteristics at every stage, providing you with the full phenological sequence from budbreak to harvest, optimal harvest time and yield potential.

Storage Evaluation

Provar evaluates the storage potential and shelf-life of your cultivars. We also identify fruit disorders with great attention to detail.


Tastelab

Home of Provar Hosted Tastings

Provar hosts a bi-weekly tasting event at the Provar Laboratory in Paarl. During exhibitions, breeders, IP owners and licensees are able to showcase and promote their new and exciting fruit cultivars. Tasters can then rate these fruit selections based on a standard set of visual and sensory characteristics according to their spontaneous appreciation of the products. Evaluations occur in a structured and controlled manner ensuring standardised responses for objective comparison.

Our Clients


For the development of the Agro Selections Fruits varieties in South Africa it is important to have an independent evaluation as it is carried out in the interest of the SA growers in order to help them to know better the ASF varieties and so to choose the best ones. The evaluation is a key tool in order to get available the information about the varieties to promote in SA. This mission was done with success by Provar recognized for the quality of its work and impartiality and will be the right partner to continue such mission.
