Two Hot New Aloe Varieties

Rancho Tissue Technologies (RTT) is debuting two aloe varieties sure to ramp up sales and demand.

Aloe hyb. ‘Christmas Carol’ PPAF and Aloe hyb. ‘Sunset’ PPAF each offer striking features that appeal to consumers and growers alike.

These two new aloe varieties were carefully selected for spectacular color and vigorous growth habits, says Owner and Founder Heather May, “and like all Rancho Tissue varieties produced from tissue culture, they offer superior uniformity that growers will appreciate.

Aloe hyb. ‘Christmas Carol’ offers some of the most amazing color available in small-size aloes.

Trimmed in bright red, the deep green leaves also feature vibrant dark red spots along the centers of the leaves. It’s best for 4- to 6-inch pots indoors or outdoors (USDA Hardiness Zones 8-11).

Possibly one of the best new releases, Aloe hyb. ‘Sunset’ truly sets itself apart from other cultivars with bright red leaf margins offset by rich green foliage.

Perfect for indoor pots or outdoor containers, ‘Sunset’ grows to about 12 in. It’s hardy in USDA Zones 8-11.
