Seaside is a superior quality variety for baby leaf and microgreen growing. It has a moderately slow growth rate and an upright plant habit, both critical for producing mild tasting, easy to harvest greens. Seaside has a smooth, thick, very dark green, spade-shaped leaf that allows for resistance to wind and rain damage and for easier cleaning. Seaside also has multiple-race downy mildew resistance for growers who require a premium disease package.

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.
