We would like to assure you we are doing everything we can to continue to ensure the health and safety of our staff, customers and community. Lefroy Valley will be following all Federal/State recommendations or guidelines. We understand some of these recommendations will cause inconvenience and apologize in advance, but will maintain every effort to keep these to a minimum.

These include:

  • Staff practising strict hygiene routines.
  • Social distancing – Remaining at least 1.5m from any other person.
  • Ensuring no staff member attends work if they are unwell.
  • Working remotely where possible.

Our product development and logistics team are working closely with suppliers to ensure that we have minimal disruption to supply. All our major suppliers are actively supporting us with earlier shipments of seed consignments for spring and summer supply. Currently freight services as expected, have experienced some delays, and we are working to minimise these to customers. There are also delays in seed passing through quarantine departments and seed testing laboratories, which we are continually communicating with these services, to minimise delay.

If you have any questions, please contact your local office or sales representative.




Lefroy Valley is a fiercely independent, wholly Australian owned professional vegetable seed company. With roots deep into the Australian vegetable industry, Lefroy Valley places the Australian grower first and strives to introduce varieties that make a difference.

New generation broccoli is now available for the coming season, as well as our trusted varieties from last season. These include Alamo, Anaconda, Blackjack, Brutus, Cassius, Diablo, El Camino, Spinks and Viper.





Currently the new varieties Alamo, Brutus, Diablo and El Camino have good colour and smooth dome heads. Of the broccoli range, we have a variety to suit all harvest seasons, including winter, spring and early summer, in different climates around Australia.

Viper, El Camino and Alamo are fastest for their chosen time slots. With Cassius having strong erect plant and thick stems, Blackjack with excellent performance for spring harvest and Spinks showing excellent weight with no side shoots, Lefroy Valley has a broccoli for every market.

ICON is a brand new gourmet which has shown outstanding potential in WA in all production slots, in Southern Queensland throughout the summer production slot and, and in the winter harvest slot in N Queensland. ICON has a vigorous bush and yields of medium large 150g-190g, firm fruit with a small, neat calyx scar. ICON has a good genetic resistance package listed below but the vigorous bush allows it to continue to yield well even under high leaf disease pressure.

Cowpea mild mottle virus (CPMMV) is a member of the Carlavirus group of plant viruses. Unlike other Carlaviruses, which are aphid transmitted, CPMMV is transmitted by the silver leaf whitefly. CPMMV has a very wide geographical range, occurring mainly in countries where grain legumes are grown. CPMMV was first detected in Australia in 2016 on bean and soybean in Queensland. French bean, soybean and cowpea are the most commonly infected, with other hosts including mung bean, asparagus bean, adzuki bean and lima bean. A wide range of symptoms can develop including leaf mottling and mosaic. Seed pods may be deformed and surface discolouration may be present. Also referred to as angular mosaic because of the yellow, angular leaf spots.

A high-value herb, basil has aromatic leaves that can be used in cooking or freshly eaten. Production can be greatly diminished by infections of basil downy mildew (BDM).
