Celery

Tozer Seeds developed the world's first commercial F1 hybrid celery varieties and now lead the world in celery varietal development. The focus of our breeding programme is very closely linked to the needs of the various international end-market requirements. We breed for yield, resistance to bolting, good flavour, field holding ability and disease resistance. Two recent introductions, which have performed exceptionally well in the UK trials, are Nero (TZ 6029) and Titus (TZ 9778).

Our expertise and breeding work are now truly international; we have varieties tailored to production and market preference around the world.
