Barbex RZ is a crisp frisee-style lettuce variety with triple red leaves. Attractive, baby-sized leaves produced by Barbex are perfect for the salad leaf segment. These incised, wavy leaves add dimension and texture to any salad preparation.
This variety has been target bred for mechanical harvesting. Leaves are upright, sturdy, and stay off the ground during winter; characteristics promoting a cleaner harvest.
This is a Salanova® variety. Salanova® is the brand name for a range of one-cut lettuce. With just one cut at the base, Salanova lettuce separates into multiple evenly proportioned, ready-to-eat, baby-sized leaves.
