Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Statiren' were conducted in a plastic tunnel under local climate conditions in Langley, British Columbia in 2001. The trials consisted of twenty (20) plants per variety grown in 25 cm pots and supported by overhead wires. The plants were spaced at a density of four (4) plants per meter square. Unless otherwise indicated, the measured characteristics were based on ten (10) measurements.
