MPI Spent a fortune getting it wrong in the first place and have no doubt spent another fortune getting it wrong again.
I am not fully convinced that they have even got to pure manuka right but when you add kanuka to the mix is when there standard falls flat on its face. You can have far more clover mixed with manuka and still make the multi-floral manuka standard than you can kanuka . Round here it almost always grows together and overlaps with flowering .
