"Almost twice the size of regular Napa cabbage! An astonishment of color, extra-large 4½ lb. cylindrical heads are jam-packed with crispy, white-ribbed, pale-green outer leaves and yellow inner leaves; one huge barrel of subtle, refreshing cabbage flavor. ‘Barrel Head’ is bolt-tolerant and resistant to downy mildew and club root."
