SANTA MARIA, CA - Celery growers, rejoice! Tozer Seeds America, a pioneer in hybridized celery, is making its latest seed innovations available on each of the company’s commercial lines. Beginning in January 2019, growers will be able to purchase the hybridized celery seeds and tap into the improved vigor, uniformity, and speed to harvest what Tozer is touting.
“Tozer is continuously committed to breeding and producing hybrid celery varieties that match the various international market requirements,” explained Kraig Kuykendall, Sales Manager. “Now is the time for sowing our lines throughout North America and we are excited to see another successful season in our markets.”
Tozer offers a wide array of celery seeds, including lines such as TZ 6200, TZ 0295, Hadrian, Hudson, and Rivalry, according to a press release. Hudson and Rivalry, which are the newest darker green celery varieties, have reportedly shown great promise for main season growing as well as strong yield and fusarium race 2 resistance. Whether for main season or winter production, any of Tozer’s hybrid celery varieties would provide excellent yield, tolerance to fusarium, great holding ability, and good flavor, the company said.
“Our main goal is to lead the market with constant variety improvements which we hope will help the grower and the end consumer as well,” added Kuykendall.
Tozer’s has been in the celery breeding game since the late 1980s, and lauds itself as the creator of the world’s first hybrid celery, Victoria. Today, Tozer’s growing selection of celery lines offer growers vigorous, healthy plants that then provide retailers with better flavor, more interesting color, and stronger stalks.
