MISTREL

« Back

MISTREL is a bright red-stemmed, green chard with thick crunchy leaves that is suitable for inclusion in salad mixes or as a stand-alone product. The leaves of MISTREL are oval shaped with a slightly savoyed texture and wavy leaf margin.

MISTREL has high resistance to Cercospera sp. and intermediate resistance to Pseudomonas sp. giving it a premium disease package against leaf spotting. In addition, the leaves hold their colour in warmer conditions and resist leaf miner damage that often discolours other leafy crops. MISTREL is a hybrid.
