Remarks
Very productive. Adapted to Central California as late- intermediate crop for immediate local consumption. Due to high non-bolting habit, can be over-wintered as transplant crop. Bulbs very large, torpedo or long oval shaped, with thin, purplish-red scales. Flesh soft and unexcelled in mildness, sweetness and flavor. Not adapted to humid regions or to the South.
