A very good cabbage, but I have trouble keeping ahead of the moths!

A 55 day, 3 lb hybrid from Takii. resistant to Fusarium Yellows. It is very early and quite uniform in size. It is pretty small, just a little larger than a softball. Crisp and tender it is better for coleslaw than the early pointed head types. It is extremely attractive to cabbage worms.
