From the U.K. this variety is known for its flavor, heavy yields and ease of cultivation. Grows quickly allowing for harvest in the second year. Dark green foliage. One of the most popular varieties of the 19th century. Has done well for us in southern Michigan with no disease issues. Does not produce a lot of seed for us but is a vigorous seedling strain and can be reproduced from seed. Every now and then some plants produce a lot of seed all at once for no apparent reason.
