A hybrid introduced in 1975 by Takii and a AAS winner. It is a main season plant that may suffer from early heat when our temps arrive early. This year we have a cool damp spring, so it it is doing nicely. I prefer earlier heading varieties for spring planting and they are more bulletproof in this area. Nice heads and tight beads. Well domed. Big plant produces good side shoots.
