VERDE

« Back

A new introduction for the hydroponic production of lollo bionda lettuce, VERDE can be grown year round and produces highly uniform heads with outstanding colour. The leaves of VERDE are thick and crunchy forming voluminous heads of good size that suit sleeving or can be harvested loose. VERDE has a very high cut out rate and will perform well during the heat due to strong tolerance to the common summer ailments of bolting, tipburn and leaf bronzing. A well filled variety, VERDE consists of a high number of finely frilled leaves resulting in a dense head that presents well in a sleeve.
