From Sakata, which offers this description: "In Texas and the Southeast, this variety has shown excellent results for processors. Yields have been as high as 50% greater than standard varieties due to its vigorous regrowth. Processors like the excellent taste. This unique hybrid compares favorably for type to standard Turnip Greens, but with much more vigor. " Grown exclusively for greens.
