Iceberg Lettuce Seeds
Local breeding work makes it possible to attain well-adapted varieties for each growing area.
Medium-vigor Salinas type for spring cultivation. Well-proportioned vegetation provides good protection to the head. Produce large sizes with a good shape and very flat bottom.
HR: Bl 16-23, 25, 31. Nr: 0
Vigorous Salinas lettuce for summer crop. Strong plant that provides extra-large heads under very hot conditions. Features high tolerance to bolting and tip burn.
Ideal variety for those who want great size in summer or warm areas.
IR: FOL 1 (Fusarium)
New Salinas type iceberg, medium vigour. Recommended for late summer and early fall growing. Has very good tolerance to bolting and tip burn. Noted for its good size and formation under heat conditions. Very good tolerance to fusarium.
IR: FOL 1 (Fusarium)
New Salinas-Vanguard type iceberg, recommended for fall transplanting. Exceptionally well formed, the plant has a deep green color and medium vigour. Noted for its flat bottom with low incidence of ribbing, and tolerance to bolting.
HR: Bl 16-26, 28, 32
New Salinas-Vanguard variety, recommended for fall and spring transplants. The dark-colored plant has medium-high vigour and upright plant habit. Noted for its freshness, holds up very well in the open field. Very well formed with a flat bottom, somewhat raised off the ground, avoiding rot. Recommended for bagging and industry.
HR: Bl 16-26, 28, 32
Medium-vigor Salinas type for spring cultivation. Strong plant that offers hardiness and good tolerance to tip burn. Very well formed pieces with low incidence of “ribbing”, very uniform and ideal in size.
HR: Bl 16-23, 25, 31, 32. Nr: 0
Very vigorous Vanguard lettuce for winter crops. The plant has a vigorous bush that protects against possible overnight frost. Able to produce large sizes under adverse conditions. Produces very uniform heads, with a slightly flattened shape, and flat ribs.
HR: BL 16-27, 29, 30, 32
Vigorous Vanguard type for cultivation in late winter or mid winter in warm areas. Shorter growing cycle than other Vanguards, large size capacity. Well-formed, hardy lettuce with good uniformity.
HR: Bl 16,17,19,21,23
Salinas type with balanced foliage and thick leaf. Large size capacity with very well-formed, heavy heads. High uniformity and productivity in the field. Recommended for March harvests, as well as mid-winter in warm areas.
HR: Bl 16, 17, 19, 21, 23. Nr: 0
Iceberg in the medium-sized ‘Salinas’ type, with a well closed head of a deep, bright green colour. Very uniform, excellent for summer harvesting as it is resistant to seed set and TipBurn (leaf margin necrosis). Good head closure even under heat stress (high temperatures). Excellent quality for tenderness, fragrance and flavour. Size of 500-600 g.
Variety with good leaf protection that offers high calibers in summer and early autumn. Excellent leaf texture which translates into very good field and post-harvest stand. High tolerance to spiking and tip burn.
Variety of the “Salinas” type with medium vigor for spring cultivation. Proportionate and fresh vegetation with good head protection. Produces good quality calibers and high tolerance to tip burn. Ideal for harvesting in April and May depending on the area.
HR: Bl:16-27,29,32,34. Nr:0
Variety for winter cultivation. Vanguard with high vigor and excellent formation. Very balanced and homogeneous lettuce with high yield and quality. Ideal for February and March harvests. Perfectly suited for fresh and processed use.
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.
