SPS 343-6 is a dark red multi leaf in the style of Ezmina that yields high leaf numbers and may, for most growers, replace this market standard. Suitable for year round production, SPS 343-6 can be grown both in the field and in most hydroponic systems for use as whole heads or as a process leaf product. SPS 343-6 has thick leaves which provides for extended shelf life. Like Ezmina, SPS 343-6 has dark red leaf margins but the inner leaf is a light green colour giving an attractive contrast across the leaf. The leaves remain uniform throughout the head, SPS 343-6 gives very little wastage due to ‘out of spec’ leaves on the outer edges. With full mildew package (BI: 1-33) and Nasonovia resistance SPS 343-6 provides growers with good disease protection.
