Lots of very sweet little heads.

Big plants produce over a very long season.

We like the way the larger "beads" (flower buds) shed water rather than getting moldy in wet weather. Heads, stalks, and leaves are all sweet and tender. Excellent frost and rain tolerance for fall-sowing, but the thing that got our attention was its hot-weather performance. In trials in California, it produced head when temperatures were in the 90's.

BOTANICAL NAME: Brassica oleracea var. italica
