Eustoma 'ABC White 02153'

Good Qualities

Very nice clear crisp white (2); 8/28- starting to form buds now, 9/8 – terminal flowers that were open were cut off to wait for sprays; Nice size blooms I have trouble selling white flowers, but I really liked it;


Seed small, took forever to get big enough to go in the field, only got 10 plants to flower, so many other things are easier – this one not worth it, plus white flowers don’t work well with other colors I grow; Even though I got this in later, I planted it in my tunnel so got decent height; Too late!; This was the weakest of the three varieties we trialed this season, they germinated poorer than the other two, were shorter and the flowers were smaller; I have always wondered if I could grow lisianthus by seed, I found out that I’ll keep ordering plugs! However, it was a real challenge and I was “tickled pink”.


Chrysal Professional #2. Note: Check out the separate postharvest article in this issue for more information on postharvest vase life and treatments.


Lisianthus is such a valuable crop, I’m still having trouble figuring out how to plant which varieties so I get a longer season of blooms instead of it all blooming at once; Sown in greenhouse 2/20/06 in 128 tray, harvest 8/11; To nurture my few little plants that did make it, I was proud as a mother hen to actually grow a “few” lisianthus from seed.
