XIMENES is a dark green, mini cos ideally suited to twin pack production. Although able to be harvested year round, XIMENES slots in nicely for growers who use Westham but would like slightly more size in the cold. XIMENES may attain midi cos size when grown over the warmer months in hydroponic systems. Like Westham, XIMENES has an overall ‘torpedo-shape’ and the slightly narrower leaves makes bagging and sleeving much easier. In cooler conditions, XIMENES has excellent vigour and maintains its shape during the often difficult transition into Spring harvest.
