These vigorous plants produce green, semi-savoy heads with a red/purple blush on the outer wrap. Heads are small to medium and slightly flattened. Great for the winter market. Depending on plant date, harvest can occur from November onwards. This variety is reputed to be very long standing, so harvest can be prolonged, dependent on the weather. In a grower trial in western Washington, harvest was from early December until early January from a July transplant date
Care: Plant 20-30″ apart in rows 24-36″ apart in full sun, cool moist soil.
These hardy varieties hunker down during the cold temperatures and heavy rains of winter, waiting to take off when light and warmth return. Harvest in late winter and spring. See our Fall & Winter Vegetable Guide for specific planting/harvest times & freeze-out temperatures.
