An 80 day, round slightly flattened hybrid. Heads will go to 10 -12 lbs. This is a high-quality, bolt-resistant hybrid that produces exhibition size heads. Space at least 3 feet apart for room to grow. It is an 80 -85 day cultivar that is said to reach 40 lbs. 20 lbs is the best I could do but it is a nice large cabbage.
