Did you know that High Rise™ broccoli by Seminis Vegetable Seeds, earned top accolades in 2019’s Science & Technology Circle of Excellence Award competition by Produce Marketing Association (PMA)?
Titanium is an authentic High-Rise™ broccoli, backed by over 20 years of research and development. High Rise varieties are typically much easier to harvest when compared to traditional ones, as they grow tall and feature a strong, clean stem with few large leaves and visible crowns.
Available in New Zealand, this award-winning variety develops a firm, heavy head which sits up in the plant’s foliage. This not only allows for an easier harvest with less cleaning once cut, but also for better air circulation around the head, minimising head rots.
Meindert Boon is Seminis’ Brassica breeder who led the development of High Rise broccoli types. In this this video from the 2018 Seminis Brassica IX event in California, Meindert discusses the High Rise innovation and shows why it is a more-than worthy recipient of the PMA Technology Circle of Excellence award.
