wonderful fall/winter

I plant this variety and others like it in July or early August in the Colorado mountains. It worked well as both a cutting and heading variety. Very poplular with my restaurant customers. I also transplant some into my minimally heated greenhouse for winter greens. Delicious and reliable. One of my favorite winter greens.
