New! 60-80 days. Heirloom. (Also known as Winter Keeper and New Century) Smooth, purple-red, top-shaped (half-long) type reaches massive proportions without becoming woody, when grown in excellent soil, given a little extra room, and allowed to develop into cooler autumn weather. We offer a re-selected strain that is true to the original type, with no pink in the stems or the large, glossy (and delicious!) leaves. Classic storage type that has been rediscovered in recent years. A winner! ~1000 seeds/oz. Pkt. (~ 125 seeds) plants 40′.
