BORIS has become popular as a versatile and dependable variety for warm season harvesting. A large framed variety, BORIS produces a medium sized curd that ensures continued performance as the cool nights begin. The well-formed wrapper serves to protect the curd from the elements – especially the extremes of heat at this time of year. BORIS consistently produces heavy, white curds.
