Positive Farmerdill On May 3, 2004, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Developed in 1988 by Northrup King, currently sold by Syngenta (Rogers brand) it is an early hybrid designed for fresh market. Medium dome 4-6 inch heads, resistant to downy mildew. It grows well here. The plant is quite large, but the central heads are very small for a modern hybrid. It is sufficiently early, much earlier than Belstar and competitve with Packman. A satisfactory cultivar, but nothing special. It does have very fine beads, if that is a desirable characteristic. 6/8/07, Everest has the best sidesprouts of any cultivar that I have grown. Rated much higher for that characteristic.
