A long-leaved type with greyish green leaves and a fairly flat growth habit. Grows more quickly than the short- leaved variety Volhart" and is somewhat less sensitive to stem rot in the winter. Very productive crop. Sow in rows in the garden. Also suitable for cultivation in a heated greenhouse and indoors. After emergence do not thin out. Grow in well worked soil that has been fertilised with compost. Keep moist. Good resistance to frost. A very vitamin-rich winter vegetable."
