Breeding of high-quality varieties
Breeding and selection
The primary selection criteria for new varieties are large flowers in clear, bright colors with uniform, growth-friendly properties and superior shelf-life test results. All new varieties or clones are tested for exceptional health and vigor properties, viruses, fungus and disease resistance as well as high ethylene tolerance and excellent keeping quality.
Quality-controlled material is grown in separate insect-free greenhouses, where elite material is stored in over-pressured greenhouse cabinets and harvested by authorized personnel only. All cuttings are grown in state-of-the-art greenhouse facilities under the supervision of highly qualified personnel before being harvested and shipped to growers around the world.

In 1939 Grower Carl Jepsen bought 5 acres of land at Norring Mølle, north of Aarhus Denmark, to start a nursery. In 1962 his son Knud Jepsen and his wife Ellen took over the nursery. During the next 30 years, the couple expands to more than 38.000m2 greenhouse, R&D and storage space.
In 1979 the company started its Kalanchoe breeding department with the objective to raise the market standard for quality plants and optimise growing conditions. Today passion and hard work have paid off and resulted in the broadest assortment of ethylene tolerant, high-quality Kalanchoes on the market.
In 1988 Queen® Genetics began selling elite material and cuttings. The demand rose quickly, and the company managed to establish itself as an innovative and serious competitor on the market recognised by several industry awards and novelty prizes.
In 2002 the first double-flower Kalanchoes where introduced under the brand name Queen® RoseFlowers. The revolutionary product extension and increased shelf life allowed easy access to new markets and development opportunities.
In 2004 Queen® Genetics entered into a strategic partnership with Dalat Hasfarm in Vietnam to expanded the cutting production and ensure optimal conditions for healthy plant growth. In 2010 Queen® Tarim, a joint venture in Turkey, was founded to keep up with the growing demand for Kalanchoe cuttings worldwide and to supply the Turkish market with finished plants.
In 2012 another breeding innovation revolutionised the market. With a minimum of 3 weeks flowering, Queen® CutFlowers have set a stunning, new standard for the longevity in the cut flowers category and opened new market opportunities.
The product portfolio is expanding. Apart from the Kalanchoe breeding program, Queen® Genetics has started to focus its breeding on developing new crops that complement the Kalanchoe assortment and stand out for their increased shelf life and optimal growing habits. Today the assortment has been extended with an extensive portfolio of succulent varieties, Roses, Asters, Chrysanthemum and Euphorbia Milii.
