PELAYO

« Back

PELAYO is a vigorous variety for production of large heads in cool and cold season. PELAYO is also a suitable replacement for Icebreaker in Spring with the added advantage of Nasonovia resistance. PELAYO is the largest iceberg in the SPS range and is suitable for both fresh and process production. PELAYO sits up off of the ground allowing for easy harvest and trimming. PELAYO has excellent internal qualities and has a similar sweet flavour to Icebreaker.
