Donated to our friends at Seed Savers Exchange in 1989 by Ralph Blackwell of Alabama. Ralph’s family grew this variety for over a hundred years and his mother used it to make a dish similar to sauerkraut. Plants grow to 2′ tall with blue-green leaves and purple stems/veins. Very good eating qualities. 60-80 days. Photo courtesy of Seed Savers Exchange.
Care: Plant 20-30″ apart in rows 24-36″ apart in full sun, cool moist soil.
