Recommended Cultivars By John Dole and Jim Barrett

This is the third year we have evaluated all of the cultivars according to production style. Determining the best cultivar for each grower is reliant on his or her location, production practices and market, and personal preferences.

The recommendations in this article are intended to help you when selecting the cultivars you would like to try in your greenhouse. All of these recommendations are based on university trials and observations of commercial crops.
