Click Image for Gallery
Topper is a very vigorous heirloom variety originally bred by Ferry-Morse Seed Company, Mountain View, California at their seed farm near our farm here in California's Santa Clara Valley. The plants are about 6 inches taller than Waltham 29 (30-36 inches tall). The primary heads are large, compact and well rounded. The buds are high quality small and medium dark green in color. There are a minimum of spurs; matures with Waltham 29. Compared to hybrids this needs less Nitrogen despite the very large plant. While originally bred for the west coast of the United States and some eastern areas, it is worth trying elsewhere, let us know how it does if you are elsewhere.
