Mundo Maya (H16 / EC16) is an F1 hybrid from a cross between T5296, a rust-resistant descendant of the Timor Hybrid, and a wild Ethiopian accession “ET01″. The variety is high yielding when planted in healthy soil, with very good quality at elevations above 1,300 metres above sea level. Mundo Maya is adapted to agroforestery/shade-grown systems.
Evaluna (H18 / EC18) is an F1 hybrid from a cross between rust-resistant Naryelis (a Catimor-type variety) and an Ethiopian landrace accession “ET06“. It is a very high yielding variety at high altitudes.
Both Hybrids were developed and distributed by CIRAD & ECOM in the mid-2000s.
