Charmant is well adapted to the different cabbage production areas of South Africa and has an excellent yield and field holding ability.  The blue-green leaves form a large frame offering very good protection to the head. Heads can weigh from 0.5 to 1.5 kg if left on the field under normal conditions.  Charmant can be used for the pre-packed supermarket, processing and export.  Charmant has intermediate resistance to Fusarium yellows (Foc).

SPECIAL VARIETAL REQUIREMENTS

  • We recommend planting on raised beds or ridges in the warm season
  • Heads are ready for harvest when the youngest leaf covering the head curls over, see photograph above
