Savoy types mature much later, retain their green colour when cooked and have better flavour than ball head cabbages. This usually means that Savoy are ready in time with early frosts and cold fall weather, making the leaves very sweet. Famosa is an excellent mid-season deep blue green Savoy from Holland. It produces 3-4lb dense round heads with a cream-yellow tinted interior. Very good flavour and tender texture. Good holding quality.
