SKILTON is a green multileaf lettuce in the spikey style that is suitable for whole head and single leaf production. SKILTON produces very high numbers of uniform leaves that have a strong, crisp texture. SKILTON can be grown year round and is complementary to Budgee for growers looking to grow two varieties side by side. SKILTON has a narrower leaf profile when compared to Budgee. SKILTON has a full mildew package (BI:1-33) and Nasonovia resistance.
