WILDEBEAST is a green multi leaf in the ‘spikey’ style but with an attractive smooth tip to the leaf that provides growers with a consistent product, year round. WILDEBEAST yields exceptionally high leaf numbers making it an ideal choice for whole head or single leaf/ salad mixes. WILDEBEAST is suitable for both field and hydroponic production. WILDEBEAST has exceptionally thick leaves which provides for extended shelf life. With dark green leaves, that remain uniform throughout the head, WILDEBEAST gives very little wastage due to ‘out of spec’ leaves. With a full mildew package (BI: 1-35) and Nasonovia resistance WILDEBEAST provides growers with good disease protection.
