The cabbage breeding program at Nash’s Farm in Sequim represents everything we wish to see in farm-based breeding: Market growers, heavily invested in particular market crops, working to improve the genetics of those open-pollinated varieties to better their own production. Given the unreliability of the hybrid seed supply, Marner is a great Northern European med-large green, hardy, round winter cabbage with some black spot resistance and excellent density. It was impressive to walk the fields with Nash and see just how well adapted to our maritime conditions Marner is. A fantastic open-pollinated variety
