DIAZ

« Back

DIAZ is a medium to large sized green oak suitable for year round production. DIAZ shows strong tolerance to bolting and tipburn in hydroponic systems. DIAZ has narrow lobes in the Kibrille style, making it an ideal alternative to Vizir (which has wider lobes) and is the ideal variety for processors looking for an inclusion in salad mixes. DIAZ shows strong tolerance to fungal rots, such as botrytis, in warm, wet conditions - often a problem with oakleafs. DIAZ has a strong disease package with full mildew cover.
