PEDROLA

« Back

A versatile variety for growing situations that require more size with greater vigour, PEDROLA is now the market standard for the shoulder season. PEDROLA has proven itself to be a reliable performer in the often variable conditions of Autumn/early Winter and Spring into, what was previously, the Marksman/Greenway slot. PEDROLA produces large, round heads that sit up off of the ground, thus reducing the incidence of bacterial disease. With extremely high cut-out rates, PEDROLA is suitable for both the bagged and naked lettuce markets and its incredible uniformity makes it perfect for growers mass harvesting for process.
