An 80 day, round slightly flattened hybrid. Heads will go to 10 -12 lbs. This is a high-quality, bolt-resistant hybrid that produces exhibition size heads. Space at least 3 feet apart for room to grow. It is an 80 -85 day cultivar that is said to reach 40 lbs.. Wal mart was giving the plants away this year (2006), so I have set out a few. They have already reached the 15 lb level, so they are much earlier maturing than Premium Late Flat Dutch which they resemble. Don't know if they will top 25 lbs.
