The Rijk Zwaan lettuce range is extremely wide. Lettuce types like butterhead, iceberg, cos, batavia and various specialities provide enormous variation in shape, colour and flavour. With Salanova we have even developed two unique lettuce types that only need one cut for them to separate into many small leaves. Rijk Zwaan lettuce is highly reliable, so that a grower has a good yield with very few problems like bolting or tipburn. Owing to our experience of many years we are able to act quickly when new strains of downy mildew are discovered. Shelf life, colour and texture are some other traits our breeders select on.
