NZ Grower - - What's New -

Sk­il­ton and Wilde­beast (SPS306-6) are both ex­tremely high yield­ing, green, multi-leaf va­ri­eties that have shown con­sis­tent per­for­mance, year round, in both field and hy­dro­ponic sys­tems. In ad­di­tion, two multi-leaf cos va­ri­eties Budgee (SPS465-7) and Ezme (SPS323-6) pro­vide grow­ers with an ex­cel­lent op­tion for a cos leaf that is high yield­ing with very uni­form leaves through the heads.

South Pa­cific Seeds have ad­di­tional va­ri­eties in trial cur­rently that will ex­tend this range with dif­fer­ent leaf types and colours such as SPS314-6.This looks very much like a multi-leaf oak in a tra­di­tional style. And then there is SPS036-7, a red spikey type with mas­sive yield po­ten­tial and a high level of dis­ease re­sis­tance al­low­ing for year round pro­duc­tion.

Breed­ing com­pany Enza Zaden has fo­cused breed­ing on bolt­ing tol­er­ance, ver­sa­til­ity and use­able yield to pro­vide an out­stand­ing range of let­tuces ide­ally suited for salad pro­duc­tion.
