Iceberg SV4896LC produces a medium to large framed lettuce that is suitable for both wholehead and processing markets. This variety has performed excellently over the last 3 years trials in the UK giving consistent performance in field holding and product quality. SV4896LC has been seen on multiple soil types – performing very well on silt, sand and organic soils. Being a later maturing variety, SV4896LC can provide the grower with additional flexibility in their programmes due to its slow filling nature. Ease of harvest, head shape and excellent basal quality combined with high resistance to Bl:16-30; 32. SV4896LC is an excellent addition to our lettuce portfolio.
