Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Sarah' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number 2007/0708, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office in Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Naktuinbouw, Wageningen, the Netherlands in 2008 and 2009. Colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
