Lettuce

Tozer Seeds have been breeding lettuce for over 50 years and were among the first to introduce mildew resistance. We continue to work hard to introduce more resistant varieties but also concentrate on enhanced texture, flavour, shape and colour. This attitude to breeding has led to the introduction of internationally grown varieties such as Ashbrook and Osterley.

CROP INFORMATION

  • Rosedale TZ 9193

    Distinctive dark red leaves of a broad tear drop shape and a wavy margin. Colour extends well down the leaf at baby leaf stage and the burgundy contrasts well with the bright green base at the whole head size. In the field this variety has always been an eye catcher with a good mildew package (17, 18, 22, 24, 25, 28-30).
