All America Selections Winner, 1944.This open pollinated variety produces large, crisp heads with slightly crumpled, thick, broad, glossy leaves and is sure to head. A widely adapted variety that is very hardy, has a good tolerance to cold and resistant to tip burn. A standard for commercial growers for decades and still a favorite of home gardeners and farmers market growers. An excellent variety for early spring plantings that can be planted as soon as the ground can be prepared and has warmed. Yields an early crop of mild, flavorful leaves before the heads form. Fantastic flavor, created for salads and sandwiches Tested by the University of Alaska cooperative extension service. An excellent early, cold climate variety for Alaskan gardens.
