A high quality and highly attractive Genovese type, MARIAN is best suited to pot production due to its compact growth habit. With a high leaf number that fills out the sleeve the leaves of MARIAN are highly uniform throughout the plant with regards to leaf size and shape. MARIAN has a strong plant and excellent leaf colour that is strong against tipburn and damage from handling with good shelf life post-harvest. The standard variety grown in the UK, MARIAN has shown improved tolerance to cooler conditions.
