HUME L' I yVRETY TRIALS AT HASTINGS, FLORIDA 1971-72
J R. Shumaker, Asst. Horticulturist
NOV 13 1972
METHODS:
'*F.' ntjlP4 E0tefit varieties were evaluated for fresh market adaptability
T"OEPTe aUltETiG s a during the 1971-72 growing season (Table 1). Hot
water-treated seed of each variety was sown October 5, and plants were
transplanted December 15. Recommended area cultural and management practices
were followed. Harvesting began on March 16, and was conducted as maturity
demanded until conclusion on April 6. A rating of 1 (poor) to 5 (desirable)
was used in evaluating external and internal head quality and uniformity
of type.

CONDITIONS:

Unseasonably wet and warm weather conditions prevailed during the winter
and early spring. Moderate delays in cabbage maturity were observed
and attributed to hard and persistent rains which caused extensive root
damage during the early season. Watery soft rot (Sclerotinia sclerotiorum)
also caused slight to moderate reduction in cabbage stands. However, the
crop made good growth during the remaining season and relatively larger
and heavier heads of moderate to high quality were obtained at harvest.

RESULTS:

Maturity, yield, quality, and uniformity of the varieties are summarized in
Table 1. Green Boy and Market Topper produced the best external-internal
head quality-uniformity combination along with high yields. For comparison,
the most popular varieties grown at Hastings are Market Prize, King Cole,
Market Topper, A & C No. 5, and Rio Verde. In addition to these, several
other varieties demonstrated a high degree of fresh market adaptability.
Superette, Blue Chip, Green Boy, and Gourmet are recommended for trial in
commercial plantings.
