Fine textured pale green above ground globe bulbs with crisp white flesh. 8-10"H with an 8-10" spread. Long leaves have slender stems. Sweet and mild cabbage/turnip like flavor. Best harvested at 2-2½" diameter. Excellent raw in dips and grated for salads, also used cooked and stir-fried.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
