Optima is a market-leading cabbage variety specifically selected for summer production. It falls in the same category as Tenacity. Optima has resistance to Black rot (Xcc) disease making it perfectly suited to areas with high Black rot pressure. It’s a strong plant that takes 80 – 95 days to mature from transplant. The big frame protects the heads very well against sunburn and wind damage. Heads are semi-round to round with a good head weight. Optima’s frame has an upright growth habit, so water doesn’t accumulate as easily at the base of the plant.
