I have not grown this variety, information only.

Introduced to the US in 1909. The 3 to 4 pound heads reach a diameter of 6" to 8" and rarely crack. 63 to 100 days from transplant.

The Copenhagen Market is an old timer which is the prototype of todays early round head cabbages. It is a few days later than Golden Acrea and will average about four lbs. Not as vigorous or disease resistant as the newer hybrids but excellent for the home garden not affected by "yellows"
