Gardeners' Notes:

Outstanding variety; dependable, disease-free, large (10" across, easily), sweet heads, especially after frost.

Positive Farmerdill On Dec 2, 2003, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

This is a relatively early open pollinated cultivar. Grew relatively well with a decent main head and a profusion of side shoots. Not as dependable, nor are the heads as marketable as the hybrids.
