From Seeds of Change:

Developed by our Research Director, Alan Kapuler, Ph.D., this nutritious selection is unusually high in free glutamine which is one of the building blocks of protein, a primary energy source of the brain and a major healing nutrient. It has a large central head with medium-sized side shoots on vigorous and attractive plants, making this a choice new variety.

24-inch plant with 4 to 6-inch central head.

60-80 days to maturity.
