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!
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.
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.
