Columbia is a particularly attractive cabbage, with firm round heads, many of which present an appealing rose blush. Columbia heads are perfectly spherical, and weigh in at 1 1/2 to nearly 3 lbs. It was a favorite in our tasting trial, crisp and juicy, with a mild sweetness and no peppery aftertaste. Columbia is one of the best of the green OP varieties. It is very solid and hard; a sure winner in a trial of over a dozen varieties grown, it was as good or better than the green hybrids trialed. This fine cabbage is the result of long-time organic produce and seed grower Nash Huber's efforts at his farm on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. It is a modern OP in the public domain. -Steve Peters
