EZME represents a new lettuce style in the market and is an exciting addition to the SPS assortment that opens up a range of opportunities for salad growers. EZME is a medium sized, open, red cos in a rosette style. Ideally EZME is used in conjunction with the new, green ‘Buttercos’ for a cos leaf salad mix but is also suitable as a stand-alone product for the whole head market. EZME has a thick but ultimately palatable leaf with an attractive shine and a slight savoy which provides bulk to salad mixes. EZME is suitable for year round production in both the field and hydroponics and is very strong against both tipburn and bolting. EZME has a strong disease package with full mildew cover (BI: 1-35) and is Nasonovia resistant.
