A new improved strain of an old standard variety designed for mid-winter harvest in the Desert Southwest and early Spring harvest in the San Joaquin Valley of California. Large, uniform smooth leaved heads are well covered to resist frost and scald. The variety is an excellent shipper with smooth butts and mid-ribs and a well rounded head. Texture is excellent and internal defects shall be found to be rare. Color is dark dull green extending well into the head.
