From Semena, who offers this description: "A new mid-early maturing white cabbage hybrid. Maturity is approximately 68-72 days from transplanting. The plant frame is open, with blue-green wrapper leaves. The dense and firm heads have a nice round shape and a short to medium-sized core. The heads have a diameter of approximately 18-23 cm and an average weight of 1.5-2.5 kg, depending on cultural conditions and planting density. Zakaz F1 produces heavy yields of cabbages with an excellent field-holding ability. The open frame makes harvesting easy. Resistant to Fusarium yellows (Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. conglutinans, race 1, IR) and Black rot (Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris, IR). Performs well in relatively warmer climates. Suitable for early cabbage production in the open field."
