This the most vigorous cabbage that I have ever grown. The plant is huge, and the head is big (6 - 8 lbs). As the name implies the leaves are crinkled, both the large outer leaves and the leaves within the head, The head is looser than a standard cabbage and subsequently large for its weight. In the New River Valley it grew like a weed, unfortunately I did not care much for the taste or find very other people who did.
