HERBS & BUNCHING
The Fairbanks Portfolio of herbs and bunching crops includes a very extensive range of herbs, including basil, parsley and coriander. It also includes bunching kale, spinach, spring onions, bunching broccoli, pak choi, artichoke, asparagus, chard, silverbeet and endive.
At Fairbanks, we work with our breeders to develop and discover different varieties of herbs that suit the New Zealand climate and market. In particular, our basil portfolio has been established to include hybrid varieties to provide superior crop uniformity. In addition, we are also proud to offer a range of basil varieties that have downy mildew resistance. We also have a selection of dill and parsley varieties catering to our individual growers’ specific needs.
