For cooler weather harvest in the Autumn and Spring, CONTESSA produces dense heads of dark green colour. The plant habit is more upright than Waltz and the heads will sit up off the ground with a flat butt. Uniform size and consistency of weight makes CONTESSA best suited to the variable conditions of Spring in more mild environments. A slightly smaller head size means CONTESSA is well suited to bagging.
