A Snowball type for short season areas that produces deep, smooth, solid 6 inch heads that are pure white and weigh about 1 1/2 pounds on dwarf plants. Snowball is not a self-blanching variety and requires the leaves be tied over the head for the curds are to remain white. May be started from seed directly in the garden in the warmer areas of Alaska. The heads will mature over a 2 to 3 week period. Excellent variety for home use and is good for freezing. This variety will mature heads almost anywhere in Alaska when the seed is started indoors . Midseason.
