VEGAS

« Back

Long time standard now for the Summer and early Autumn production of bagged iceberg lettuce, VEGAS is highly uniform resulting in fewer harvesting passes and a higher harvest recovery. A dark green Salinas type, VEGAS produces medium sized heads that are well filled with a low core and good tipburn tolerance under hot conditions. With a nice head shape and good colour the heads present well in the bag.
