1405-CO  Brassica oleracea

(RED, EARLY) 65 days from transplant.

I’ll proclaim my bias and state that I prefer red anyway, but Red Express still got me quick! This little guy headed up early in the season and brought us to market with great colour and 3-5 lb heads that customers loved. Better flavour for slaws and salads, and when planted in close quarters makes cute 6" mini-heads.

~300 seeds/g

(Rouge/hâtif/d’été)  65 jours après repiquage.  Je vous confie que j’aime déjà le rouge, mais j’ai rapidement succombé aux charmes du «Red Express»!  Celui-ci a manifesté sa présence en tout début de saison et nous a rejoins lors de la saison des marchés avec couleurs splendide. Nos clients ont vraiment apprécié ses inflorescences d’entre 3 et 5 livres.  Rehausse la saveur d’une salade verte ou de choux, lorsqu’on les sème en proximité elle produit d’adorables mini-pommets de 6 pouces.   

Thanks to Sarah Stewart for the photo!
