Lima Deleon is from Sítio Terra Alta in Caparaó Park, Brazil. Lima is a 5th generation producer at his family farm and has a degree in Agronomy as well as completing a PhD meaning he is not only passionate about the field but knowledgeable.
The Rubi MG 1192 cultivar is the first of the cross between the Catuaí and Mundo Novo cultivars, carried out by technicians from the Campinas Agronomic Institute in the 1960s and introduced in Minas Gerais, Brazil by Epamig, in the 1970s. Several properties of this material were evaluated in several places in the southern region of Minas Gerais, being launched, until now, for commercial cultivation, in an MG 1192 strain, under the name Rubi-MG 1192.
