Little Gem Lettuce Seeds
Local breeding work makes it possible to attain well-adapted varieties for each growing area.
Medium dark green variety with a slightly blistered leaf and very nice display of outer leaves. Slow growth, nice shape. Ideal size, not excessively tall under low light conditions. Holds up very well in the field.
HR: Bl 16-26, 28, 32
Little Gem for summer cultivation. Somewhat blistered leaf with deep green coloring. Hearts have an ideal size and excellent uniformity. Does not exceed a good size and height. Excellent tolerance to bolting.
HR: Bl 16,21,23
Little Gem with good vigor and size, for spring-summer and fall crops. Medium-colored leaves, slightly blistered. The pieces are medium-large in size, with excellent uniformity and formation. Very good tolerance to bolting and stress under conditions of high heat.
HR: Bl 16,21,23,32
High vigor variety with erect plant habit for growing in winter and spring. Leaf is mildly blistered, with a medium dark green coloring. Good size and performance under different conditions. Nice closed base and excellent uniformity.
HR: Bl 16-27, 29, 32, Nr:0
Red Little Gem for growing at the height of summer. Medium size and vigor. Deep, shiny red color is highly attractive. Excellent tolerance to bolting and holds well in the field. Very pretty, uniform pieces.
HR: Bl 17-22,24-28, 30,31
High Resistance. Plant varieties that highly restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen under normal pest or pathogen pressure when compared to susceptible varieties. These plant varieties may, however, exhibit some symptoms or damage under heavy pest or pathogen pressure.
Intermediate Resistance. Plant varieties that restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen, but may exhibit a greater range of symptoms or damage compared to high resistant varieties. Intermediately resistant plant varieties will still show less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant varieties when grown under similar environmental conditions and/or pest or pathogen pressure.
Physiological races Bl:1-15 of Bremia lactucae (downy mildew) in lettuce are agronomical no longer relevant in Europe, as to the best of our knowledge these races are no longer observed in practice in Europe nowadays. Therefore reference to the races Bl:1-15 is no longer made in resistance claims with regard to B. lactucae. From May 1st 2014 onwards, the resistance claim of a variety refers only to Bl:16-31.
P.s.: Although race Bl:19 is to the best of our knowledge also no longer observed in practice nowadays, reference to the race Bl:19 will continue to be made in resistance claims with regard to B. lactucae to simplify the notation of the resistance claim. In practice this means that for example Bl:16-31 should be understood as Bl:16-18,20-31.
