Reliable quality and easy to grow. Classic, medium-size dark blue-green heads have an earthy, nutty flavor. Happy plants that are well-fed and watered will also produce side-shoots. Waltham 29 is a great cool-climate vegetable with successive maturity, meaning the whole crop doesn’t mature at once. Ideal for the home vegetable garden! Enjoy it raw, steamed, stir-fried or in soups. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.
