DESCRIPTION

A simply beautiful and flavorful addition to your garden! This early variety produces 1-3 lb crisp light green heads with vibrant deep reddish-purple leaf margins. Can be sown in spring or fall but fall usually works better. Very cold tolerant. The crinkly leaves make it a perfect option for wrapping and stuffing. Excellent for storage. Brightens winter soups, stir-fries and summer slaw dishes!

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.

HEIRLOOM

This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
