Heirloom Vegetable. Danish Ballhead produces outstanding quality and uniform, tender, fine-grained heads – all the reasons why this is such a popular variety. Medium to large heads grow to 20 cm (8″) in diameter and weigh on average 2.5 kgs (5.5 lbs). This long storing variety is excellent for kraut, cooking and slaw production. Introduced in the late 1880’s.
