New and unique cabbage cultivar

Last fall our lab experimented with a new and unique cabbage cultivar called 'Caraflex'. Results from the study show promise for this cultivar as a potential crop for Iowa and the Midwest. This cabbage has small heads with good wrapper leaves for insect and sun protection. Leaves are tender, crunchy, and have mild cabbage flavor. This cabbage seems to more like a blend of two vegetables- cabbage + lettuce. Average yield were in the range of 3,000-4,000 lbs/A
