Description

An early Copenhagen type producing solid, round heads on small compact plants. Earliest to mature with excellent bolting resistance. Heads weigh about 2kg (4.4lbs) and grow to about 15-17cm (6-61/2″) in diameter. Tolerates closer spacing and is an excellent choice for poorer soils. Yellows resistant.
