New! 100-120 days. Heirloom. Traditional kraut variety from the Stuttgart region in southern Germany, where it has been beloved since the 18th century. Flavor is excellent, with none of the harsh overtones sometimes found in modern types. Its awkward, almost comical pointed shape makes it inconvenient for mechanical processing, but that is no drawback to the home- or market gardener. Heads reach quite a large size, up to 10 lbs, store moderately well; its sublime flavor has earned it a place in the Slow Foods Ark of Taste. 7000 seeds/oz. Pkt (-160 seeds) plants 40′, more from transplant.
