Very Similar to Packman. Container friendly. Both grow well in SE Georgia and store under refridgeration for weeks. Relatively disease free.

Seeds from Pinetree came late this year, so I couldn't get this started until late (19 March). Fortunately we had a cool early summer, and I got a pretty good yield.

Raised as a spring crop, set out on April 1st, 2006. Mostly 5 to 7 inch heads @ about 8 weeks. After cutting main head, good crop of 2 to 3 inch side shoots.

A main season hybrid that is often grown for a fall crop. Introduced in 1975 by Takii and a AAS winner. It is still widely available. Performs well here but is a liitle late maturing for a spring crop.
