A 78 day Vates type hybrid from Sakata (1992). Very slow to bolt. Ideal for market gardeners and processors A short stem cultivar that is fast growing. Doing well here. 12/30/08 Seems to be more suceptible to stem rot than any others that I tried, Warm wet spell, for about two weeks and big lush plants are showing several instances of stem rot. Cabbage collards (both regular and yellow) growing in the same area are smaller plants but showing no signs of stem rot.
