AURORA

« Back

An improved Atomic type that is early maturing, AURORA is best suited to late Summer and Autumn production when heat inversions between night and day can stress plants and increase the likelihood of physiological conditions such as brown bead, hollow stem and purpling, all of which AURORA has strong tolerance to. AURORA produces a dome shaped head of good colour with a thicker stem which ensures significantly longer shelf life for the final product.
