Romain Lettuce Seeds
Local breeding work makes it possible to attain well-adapted varieties for each growing
Romain lettuce, shiny medium green colour, suitable for spring and autumn harvesting.
Open bush, which only closes once maturation is complete, makes it very tolerant to Tip Burn. Excellent resistance to bolting and the nice head shape in addition to the good tolerance to Fusarium mean that Octavia is very interesting for the fresh market.
HR: Bl 16-32
IR: FOL 1 (Fusarium)
Blond romain for full summer productions.
Erect plant with wide bottom and thick leaves.
Suitable for late spring and summer seasons.
Excellent resistance to bolting, Tip Burn and twisting.
HR: Bl 16-32, FOL 1 (Fusarium)
Romain lettuce shiny dark green, blistered. It has excellent adaptability to different periods of transplanting from late spring to summer and early fall. Open bush, which only closes when mature, very tolerant to Tip Burn. The excellent resistance to bolting and the nice shape make it very interesting for the fresh market and industrial processing for 4 gamme.
HR: Bl 16-32, FOL 1 (Fusarium)
“Inverna type” variety with a medium-light green color for growing in spring and late summer. Vigorous plant produces good-sized pieces. Very nice shaped Romaine, suitable for “romain hearts” in trays or bags. Good tolerance to bolting and tip burn.
HR: Bl 16-28, 30-32. Nr: 0
Special mid-sized Romaine especially for “hearts”, for spring-summer-fall crops. Medium green variety with a smooth and thick leaf and excellent tolerance to bolting and tip burn. Very nice shape, medium-sized pieces, ideal for trays or bagging.
HR: Bl 16-32, Nr:0
Romain variety for summer cultivation. Vigorous with pieces of ideal size for both bag or hearts. Medium light colour and crisp texture. Nice formation with excellent uniformity. Very good tolerance to spiking and tip burn.
HR: Bl 16-28, 30-32 Nr:0
IR: FOL 1,4 (Fusarium)
Very strong romain variety for late autumn and winter harvests. Vigorous variety with puffed leaves and intense colour. It provides pieces of ideal size for both bagging and processing. Variety of excellent uniformity and formation with tolerance to “spiral”. Medium slow filling with very good field endurance.
Romain variety indicated for autumn-spring cycle. Medium vigor variety of medium dark green with elevated tolerance to bolting and tip burn.
Ideal for industry trays or bagging.
HR: Downy mildew (Bl: 16-32).
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.
