SERRANA is a medium to large sized, green Batavia suitable for year round production. SERRANA offers growers consistent vigour not offered by traditional Lollo types - an advantage most noticeable in Winter conditions. SERRANA can be grown for both whole head and salad leaf use (sandwich leaf). SERRANA complements Melina with its darker green colour and slightly higher vigour. Like most Batavia types SERRANA shows strong tolerance to fungal rots, such as botrytis, in warm, wet conditions and sclerotinia year round. SERRANA has a strong disease package with full mildew cover ( BI:1-32) and is Nasonovia resistant.
