A variety developed by Territorial Seeds approximately 22 years ago. We trialled this variety and the results showed that it is still one of the best open pollinated types available. It produces a dark green medium-sized head followed by many decent-sized compact side shots over a long growing season, probably two months at least. The seed has been produced by one of the best specialists in OP selections. Sow Sep through to March.
