Broccoli, Limba: Fedco calls it "a good home-garden variety with medium beads, good flavor and texture, slow to bolt and decent production of side shoots" 8" heads.

Brussels Sprouts: Gustus

Golden Acre: Early green cabbage averaging 3-5 pounds. 62 days to maturity.
Super Red 80: 3-5 lb heads that resist splitting, 80 days
