A very fast growing pointed cabbage suitable for use as spring greens or early summer cropping. Greyhound (also known as ‘Express’ and ‘Eersterling’) is a traditional dual purpose variety suited to both late-summer /autumn sowings (for spring greens) or early summer production. We grow it mainly for spring greens. It is an RHS Award of Garden Merit winner that has stood the test of time.
