Originally this beautiful red leaf used to be imported from the North East of Asia. However, due to the complex cultivation in those countries, it was not possible to grow it without pesticides. The amount of residue was too high to be allowed into the EEC. At the special request of some top restaurants we took up the challenge to grow this crop under our greenhouse con ditions, without pesticides! Without any previous knowledge our technicians managed to find a way to cultivate the crop, using beneficial insects, which eliminate harmful insects. Spray ing is no longer required. The result is a healthy and clean crop.
