Produce and Garden Wax
SouthWest Wax Garden Wax is utilized for two purposes:
- As a protective coating for the plant stems
This flexible, pliable coating is utilized on the stems, to protect the rose bush during transit. The wax also seals nutrients into the plant prior to planting.
As a grafting wax, this specialty formulation protects the plant from drying after cuts are made. Wax is preferred to other adhesive products due to its flexible, pliable, adhesion promoting and water-resistant properties.
SouthWest Wax manufacturers food-grade specialty wax coatings utilized on the outer surface and roots of Parsnips, Rutabagas, and Turnips. The wax is applied in a thin coating to protect the outer surface and roots to preserve freshness.
These specialty formulations impart a flexible, pliable coating unlike paraffin, which is hard and brittle. The outer surface and roots of such produce are cut and peeled prior to cooking.
