What are the pros? bug resistant, large heads
What are the cons? none
Started these indoors and transplanted around the 1st of June here in zone 4, when they were about 2 inches tall. We had a hot dry summer, and I was terrible at keeping up with the watering. Then, in the fall, when it got wet and cold, these really got big! And they didn't crack like so many others I have gotten from nurseries! These also didn't seem bothered by bugs, and were beautiful. If you want a beautiful fair cabbage, then these are for you. I didn't get around to it this year, but I imagine they would make great saurkraut as the description says. They are very sweet and buttery cabbages that are very low maintenance!

What are the pros? Easy germination
I germinated inside with a heat mat. All of my seeds have turned into hardy little seedlings! They are straight and not leggy at all. So excited to get these into the garden. Sprouted quickly within a day or two. I will give an update when I harvest.

What are the pros? Large, perfecty formed.
This was my first year growing cabbage. I had 8 plants which all grew perfectly and varied in size from 9.5 to 13 pounds. I was very pleased and will definitely plant this type again!

What are the pros? good production, firm,crisp
What are the cons? Does not ferment itself
Second the reviewer who said it makes excellent sauerkraut. It also hung in there well. I had a few heads go all summer without splitting or bolting. Made kraut from spring cabbage in the fall. Not bad for zone 5

What are the cons?
We harvested one monster, which after trimming the outer earwig chomped leaves (so we knew it was going to be a "good "un"), weighed 17 pounds. Made incredible sauerkraut.
