New and colorful vegetable varieties to behold at the upcoming Rijk Zwaan demos

Rijk Zwaan’s Hydroponics Leaf and Outdoor demos are on the agenda again in June, showcasing the vegetable breeding company’s new, colorful and high-tech vegetable varieties. In fact, both demos will run in parallel from 13-24 June, with the Outdoor demo then continuing until 1 July. During the Hydroponics Leaf Demo, Rijk Zwaan’s living lettuce concepts Salatrio® and Salanova® will be put in the spotlight. Other eye-catchers will be the company’s high-density Salanova Teenleaf and a new variety with burger-sized lettuce leaves. Meanwhile, the Outdoor Demo will highlight Rijk Zwaan’s extensive range of leafy varieties and the attractive cauliflower varieties with magnetizing colors and shapes.

This year’s displays will be based around three main hydroponic lettuce concepts: 1) The appealing and versatile combinations of Salatrio – a colorful living lettuce concept featuring an abundance of tasty leaves, enabling retailers to add more color and diversity to the shelf and attract shoppers from across the store; 2) High-density Salanova Teenleaf – an entire range of mid-sized leaf varieties that are machine harvestable and available in a wide choice of attractive colors, textures and leaf shapes; and 3) Rijk Zwaan’s burger leaf variety with a high count of burger-sized leaves that can easily withstand heat and acidity. Furthermore, Rijk Zwaan is looking forward to welcoming visitors to its new and inspiring location in Dinteloord for valuable and stimulating discussions regarding existing and new hydroponic projects.
