Fresh Start (Hybrid)
Fresh Start hybrid is a fast-growing baby leaf variety, grown only for the leaves (it does not form a root).

Its crunchy texture pairs well with any kind of dressing. Leaves can be cut multiple times for an extended harvest. A perfect addition to baby leaf salad blends. HR: Pfb

HR = High resistance: plant varieties that highly restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen under normal pest or pathogen pressure when compared to susceptible varieties. These plant varieties may, however, exhibit some symptoms or damage under heavy pathogen or pest pressure.
IR = Intermediate resistance: plant varieties that restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen, but may exhibit a greater range of symptoms or damage compared to “highly resistant” varieties. Intermediately resistant plant varieties will still show less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant varieties when grown under similar environmental conditions and/or pathogen or pest pressure.
T = Tolerance: The ability of a plant variety to endure abiotic stress without serious consequences for growth, appearance and yield.
