Sunbelt is our new warm weather romaine. Along with its strong bolting resistance and high tolerance to tip burn, we have managed to improve its tolerance to fringe burn during warm windy days in the Salinas Valley. Sunbelt exhibits a large frame with a 12” to 14” plant height, it is extremely non- cupping at harvest time. Sunbelt has an extremely smooth midrib and wide leaf petiole with a straight tapered butt shape, which makes for an impressive pack at harvest time. Sunbelt has excellent hold- ability at past optimum maturity, which would help processor salad trade.
