Tanimura & Antle introduces new lettuce variety in honour of co-founder

Tanimura & Antle introduces a new lettuce variety, George T’s Special Colossal Romaine Heart, in honour of company co-founder George Tanimura who is celebrating his 100th year in 2014. This new seed variety combines two of George Tanimura’s favourite lettuces, Iceberg and Romaine Hearts, and offers superior flavour, improved sustainable value and impressive per-head yield. It is packaged in a 40lb. 24-count retro-designed carton that features the original red and blue T&A label.

George T’s Special Colossal Romaine Heart has been bred to be a true heart lettuce variety, requiring far fewer leaves to be trimmed at harvest, leaving less waste in the field. George Tanimura pioneered drip tape in row-crop agriculture years ago, and this lettuce variety continues his dedication to sustainable farming methods. “George Tanimura is a true and tireless leader, whose contributions to the produce industry will never be matched,” says Mike Antle, Senior Vice President and Partner.

This new lettuce seed variety has been developed to blend the finest characteristics of two popular lettuce varieties; the superior crunch and mouth appeal of Iceberg Lettuce and the deep colour & sweet flavour of a Romaine Heart. Each head yields 7 - 3 oz. servings, a significantly superior value for food service operators.
