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. Many of our newest varieties have been created specifically for international markets such as the USA.

  • Hadrian F1 TZ 9077

    Hadrian is the newest darker green celery variety showing good height and excellent weight in trials in Europe and USA. During the early sowings it has shown intermediate tolerance to bolting, and in the summer is less prone to producing side shoots than other varieties. Extensive trials are continuing across Europe and the USA where it shows good resistance to Fusarium.

  • Nero F1

    This is our newest introduction for early and main season cropping to run alongside Victoria. Extensive UK trials have shown this variety to be quick to mature and gain weight early in the season and often slower to bolt than Victoria. With similar colour and texture to Victoria as well as excellent eating qualities we believe this variety will be a great addition to our range.
