For reliable production of mini cos heads through the difficult period of Summer, ALBARA is a standout performer.  Suited to harvest for the twin pack market, ALBARA is a direct replacement for the recently discontinued Conchita.  Mid-green in colour, ALBARA has very strong bolting and tipburn tolerance and has consistently produced quality heads over a variety of Summer conditions - from dry heat on sandy soils to high humidity on heavy soils.  With a small core ALBARA has also shown itself to be extremely tolerant to jelly butt in high nitrogen conditions, meaning less wastage post harvest.
