Sidewinder is a large vanguard type with exceptional leaf texture for Desert Fall Plantings. It has excellent head coverage giving it a high tolerance to sunscald. Sidewinder also has high tolerance to interior tip burn. It has a long dark green cap leaf, round head shape, and impressive butt appearance. Heads are bigger and heavier than Raider and Sundevil with higher yields making it ideal for wrap lettuce, processor, and naked pack.
