Gardeners' Notes:

Positive DAKOTA31400 On May 2, 2010, DAKOTA31400 from Petersburg, ND (Zone 3a) wrote:

Fast maturity, disease resistant, container friendly, Very thick maim stems as well as the floret branches.
Unlike the name, the heads are more or less flat....but large. For preperation, the heads of this plant can be pulled apart for blanching, steaming or salads instead of haveing to be cut it into peices (stems excluded). Tastes the same (good) as most other cultivars. Bottom line, I'm partial to the Snow Crown cultivar because it looks nicer,....but Coronado's productiity far exceeds the latter. Unlike other comments, Side shoot production when grown in containers is null ,
