A late hybrid variety intended for summer as well as autumn harvest. Plants are tall, uniform and intended mainly for single harvests. Heads are medium-sized, round, well-closed, with a dark green colour. The outer leaves are strongly blistered. In the cross section the head is yellowish, with a short inner stalk. Heads are resistant to splitting and uprooting. The growing time from planting is 105-110 days. The recommended plant spacing is 60 x 50 cm.
1 gram = 250-320 seeds.
The demands of early and late varieties are very different. Varieties for early field sowing and for cold forcing demand a light, warm, sandy-clay soil. The late varieties are suited to medium heavy soils with sufficient levels of calcium. The earliest sowing into trays can be done from the end of January, direct sowing in March under cover and in April in the field. Late varieties can be sown throughout the whole of May for transplanting or sown directly. The recommended plant spacing for forcing is 30 x 40 cm, for field planting 40 x 40 cm. For mid-late and late varieties the plant spacing is 50 x 50 to 60 x 60 cm.
Seed consumption: 350-500 g /ha.
Harvest: for early varieties, in stages depending on the level of maturity, for hybrids of late varieties it is possible to harvest all at the same time.
