This best-selling high yielding variety has excellent uniformity and is disease resistant. While heat and cold tolerant, cool temperatures will produce smaller stalks.

Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring after last frost to late summer/early fall in a sunny location. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Harvest main stalk when it reaches 8-10' tall and 2-3 flowers are open. After this is cut, the plant branches freely for an extended harvest but stems and leaves will be smaller.
