OP. Introduced in 1934 by W. Altee Burpee, this well-known bolt resistant variety has been a gardener’s favourite for years. A prolific grower with a long harvest period, the plants grow 50 to 60cm tall producing large crinkled leaves that handle both heat and frost well. It has great flavour and is a dependable green for the summer and winter menu alike. Great for beginner gardeners as it is one of the easiest vegetables to grow!
Sow in trays in September-October for spring and summer production. Prick out to 4cm diagonal spacing. Transplant into fertile ground at 40cm diagonal spacing. Repeat sowing in January-February for constant supply.
