General characters

Presents the advantage of a production use of early vegetables in the very premature zones (Mediterranean Basin) or in culture of out of season. Its good content in dry matter and its weak content in reducing sugars allow her an industrial use in the beginning of season, before the appearance of the half--hasty varieties (type Bintje or Saturna).
