MATADOR is an extremely vigorous cool/cold season variety suited to late Winter and Spring harvest. MATADOR is a ‘Vanguard’ type with a heavily blistered leaf and is able to withstand frosts due to its large frame. MATADOR is a sure-heading variety which provides for a uniform harvest and a high cut-out of consistently large, round heads.

Given it is a sure-heading type MATADOR will reliably produce heads during periods of more mild weather during late Spring – a regular issue with older varieties. MATADOR forms round heads that sit up off of the ground allowing for ease of harvest. MATADOR has shown excellent tolerance to mildew and anthracnose.
