Lettuce | Midi Cos | Cool-season
This is a midi cos lettuce that offers a cool-season counterpart to Gradara RZ.
It’s a nice and compact cos with a solid mid-rib and slightly blistered leaves. It has an attractive blonde-green colouring that is uniform throughout the whole plant; an appealing attribute for processors.
This variety has stable closing and good internals.
It is a cool-season variety, suited to autumn, winter and spring. Hand-in-hand with Gradara RZ, together they offer a year-round programme of midi cos for either processors or in a single sleeve to retailers.
With good strength against tip burn, this variety could grow into the shoulder season with more assurance than competitor varieties. The most up-to-date mildew resistance for Australian growers also adds to the appeal.
