The true and popular Italian heirloom with spiraling, apple-green heads that are so superbly flavored. This variety is widely grown in northern Italy. A must with many of the finest chefs.

What are the pros? beautiful fractal like heads

What are the cons? none

Review:

One of my favorites I first saw at a farmers market in WA. Upon seeing the seeds here I had to grow them. It was extremely easy. Seeds popped in no time had many a nesco to share and eat. We even pickled some and its fantastic. This will forever be in my garden.

What are the pros? unusual, great taste

What are the cons? poor germination or all leaves

Review:

Finally, we kept trying to get this plant to make a head (usually all leaves) and often poor germination. This year we achieved our goal. It is a fantastic and unusual plant and we love the taste. It seldom reaches the kitchen. We will plant it again even if it does give us trouble!

What are the pros? planned seed direct in ground

What are the cons? takes awhile to mature

Review:

I was covered too, I planted mine the 2nd week in September, all I had were big leaves, but last week all the sudden I found softball size heads tucked down the middle of plant. Can't wait to try them!

What are the pros? nothing

What are the cons? where are the heads?

Review:

We also got huge, leafy plants but no heads. We are actually in southern Ontario, Canada but your website only allows states to review so I listed New York. Our climate is very similar to New York's. Our other cabbage family plants did very well this summer so it was disappointing that this one only grew leaves. It's very interesting that other reviewers said the same thing.

What are the pros? Grew fast

What are the cons? No heads

Review:

This plant grew very fast and didn't seem to care much about what the weather was doing, hot or cold, it kept growing. After the first frost the plant started to gain purple strips all over. It did seem to attract cabbage white butterflies, but the bees took care of most of them. These plants did well growing a little closer together than is stated. We had some closer together and some with the recommended amount of space. I wouldn't recommend this plant to others because, like the other reviews said, no heads. I will try growing again in 2015 in hopes of getting something. May have to experiment with spacing as well. My review will be updated at the end of the next growing season.
