JOSHUA is large midi cos or ¾ size that is suitable for year round production due to good mid-Winter vigour and a strong tolerance to bolting as a result of the late closing heads. For Winter productions in very cold regions JOSHUA will be suitable for growers that are looking for a larger midi cos than Xaroma. JOSHUA has a very high leaf count which makes it suitable for both the processing and sleeving markets and shows good tolerance to tipburn in the warmer months, crucial for processing recoveries. A very uniform variety, JOSHUA provides a very even harvest of clean heads.
