This was my first foray into growing cabbage and this cabbage did really well for us this winter. It was fairly easy to grow, and not too many pest issues. Very sweet flavor and unique form. I will definitely grow this variety again.
I didn't like cabbage until I grew these. I would eat cabbage but didn't care for the taste. These are wonderful. Easy to grow and they are smaller so you don't have to worry about what to do with the left overs. They make great coleslaw.
Smaller and less compact than the traditional cabbage I've always grown. However, when I made my usual cole slaw this year, my husband said it was the best he'd ever tasted! It really is delicious - not as "cabbagy" but sweeter. A cinch to grow! Wish I had planted more.
