Introduction, breeding and selection of excellent varieties of vegetable: (8) Selection of compatible varieties of autumn cropping lettuce
2000 - 2002
The market share of lettuce made in this Prefecture at Metropolitan Tokyo Central Wholesale Market is relatively low in November to December. To cope with this situation, varieties suitable for harvesting in this period were selected. As the varieties for harvesting in late November to early December, 3 varieties such as 'Leogrand', 'MK-L84', and 'Shizuka' were decided to be suitable, as they grow stably both in this Center and the local production site (Kobe). 'Sisco-F' was also thought to be promising for sand soil of Kobe.
