We are launching two newer celery lines, Hudson and Rivalry, which show excellent yield and field holding ability. These two newer lines are both main season onwards varieties, both showing excellent fusarium tolerance.
The TZ 6200 continues to be Tozer’s lead variety with wide adaptability. This is a standard green variety ideal for mid-season plantings onwards. It performs extremely well, continuously producing heavy yields.
“Our new celery lines, Hudson and Rivalry, are expected to perform just as well as our lead varieties,” said Kraig Kuykendall, our sales manager. “Our breeding program is very closely linked to the needs of the various market requirements and we have varieties tailored to production and market preference around the world.”
“We led the development of the world’s first commercial hybrid celery with the release of Victoria in the 1980s,” he continued. “This celery is earlier with maturity allowing for it to be quicker to harvest and has better weight.
Since then, we haves maintained our status as the world leader in the development of new celery varieties breeding for yield, resistance to bolting, field holding ability, disease resistance and good flavor.”
