Ratings & Reviews
I'm located in Hardiness Zone 6B (Kansas), and I've been very pleased with this variety. I haven't cut the heads yet, but the majority if them appear to be 2-3 lb heads just like the description says, and I'm about 70 days since transplant. Beautiful plants, and zero complaints, and no issues with the heads splitting or cracking. I Better get them out of the garden before the raccoons and opossums find them!
