Breeder:Paul Ecke Ranch
Summary:This is a new white in the Premier series. It is slightly less vigorous than Premier Red, and the bract size is smaller than either the red or pink cultivars. Premier finishes very early, and in warm climates it is difficult to hold the plants in the greenhouse. Premier White developed bract edge burn and cyathia drop as it matured. Like most dark leaf white cultivars, the color is not a pure white. Premier White had a golden cast and looked nice with gold decorations. The cultivar did not grow well under Ontario conditions. Premier White is best suited as a companion cultivar for growers who are using Premier Red.
