Kallaland is a young business, set up in 2003 by brothers Jan and Ton Kortekaas.
From the beginning, Kallaland specialized in growing Zantedeschias, also known as Callas. In the Calla world, Kallaland has committed to producing the coloured Callas particularly from the new range. Contact with the breeders is strong and gives Kallaland access to a wide range of products.
Kallaland first began by only producing Calla for the tubers, and started to produce Calla flowers 2 years later. The flowers are from their own tubers, grown especially for floriculture. After flower cultivation the tubers are no longer cultivated and new tubers are ready for the next flower production. This cultivation method results in a sturdier, coarser flower. Kallaland focuses on outdoor production of Calla flowers that are in production outside from late July. Growing Calla outside gives a more intense colour and also firmer flowers.
Kallaland produces its flowers from late July to early November.
Through Summerflowers Kallaland hopes to bring this gorgeous Dutch outdoor product more to the attention of traders and florists.
