First grown in the U.S. by Francis Brill of Jersey City, New Jersey in 1840. Conical, solid, tightly folded heads are up to 15″ long by 7″ wide and weigh 3-4 pounds. 60-75 days from transplant. A variety developed in the US that quickly grows solid, sweet, tender, two to three pound, five to seven inch heads with a distinctly pointed, conical shape. A variety regarded by many as one of the best tasting cabbages. Its compact size and the fact that is does well planted close makes it ideal for the raised bed gardener. It is generally grown for a summer harvest as it does over winter well and must be harvested as soon as it matures or the heads will split. It is one of the earliest and best cabbages around. Very reliable, excellent quality.
