This is my favorite of the Wakefield type cabbages. It is about three times the size (4+ lbs) and about a week later (72 days)than the Jersey Wakefield. The cone (heart) shaped head is broader at the base than the Jersey. For a medium early old fashioned boiling cabbage it can't be beat. For slaw and other raw cabbage purposes it is not as tender as the round head (Copenhagen Market) types.
