EZMARI (BUTTERCOS)

« Back

EZMARI is a green multi leaf in the butterhead/ cos style that yields extremely high leaf numbers. EZMARI can be grown both in the field and in hydroponic systems and is suitable for year round production - although performs exceptionally well in cool conditions due to its vigour. EZMARI is an ideal variety for salad producers looking for a cos style leaf to use in mixes but it can also be used as whole heads in a sleeve or clamshells. EZMARI has a butterhead style leaf texture that is soft to the bite but still provides for good shelf life; the leaf has a slight blister and cup giving bulk to mixes. The leaves of EZMARI remain uniform in size throughout the head giving very little wastage due to ‘out of spec’ leaves. BUTTERCOS has BI: 1-27, 29, 32; LMV:1 and Nasonovia resistance.
