MELINA is a year round Batavia lettuce bred specifically for the process market. MELINA produces high numbers of uniform leaves with a frilled leaf margin. Producing highly uniform leaves of a rounder shape, MELINA is an ideal variety for the burger leaf market. Processed leaves of MELINA have a long shelf life due to the thickness of the leaf and show good tolerance to browning post-harvest.
