Markon must make a recipe change to RSS Hearts & Hearts Salad Blend due to challenges with raw product green leaf supplies. Green leaf is extremely limited due to the INSV virus, Sclerotinia disease, and fewer acres planted in the 2022 Salinas and Santa Maria, California seasons. The new blend will start shipping on the 10/04/22 pack date.

The original RSS Hearts & Hearts recipe specification is:

  • 50% Spring Mix
  • 25% Green Leaf Heart Material
  • 25% Romaine Heart Material

Moving forward, green leaf will be replaced with green gem heart material. Although green leaf and green gem leaf are two different varieties, they are very similar in color and texture. Taylor Farms has completed their shelf-life validation testing to ensure the gem leaf will coexist properly in the bag with the other varieties (shelf-life will not differ).

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
