Copenhagen Market

80 days — One of the largest early maturing roundhead varieties. The solid, round heads are six to eight inches in diameter and average three to four pounds in weight. The texture is tender and crisp with a good, mild flavor. Keeps well.

Bred by Hjalmar Hartmann & Company of Copenhagen, Denmark and first introduced in 1909. The exact parentage is not known but is believed to be the old German variety, 'Ditmarscher'. W. Atlee Burpee introduced 'Copenhagen Market' into the United States in 1911.[1] Each packet contains 1 gram, which is approximately 150 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Plant indoors five weeks prior to your last expected frost date. Sow at a depth of about ¼ inch keeping moist until the seedlings appear. Use as much light as possible, watering as required.

Two weeks prior to transplanting, acclimate the seedlings to the outdoors by moving outside into the shade and then return indoors at night. Expose the plants to more direct sunlight every day. Check moisture regularly. Transplant 16 inches apart in rows spaced 24 inches.
Although the name or description of this variety refers to a modern company's name, the seed we are offering is in no way sourced from, "owned by" or connected with that company. The name is simply the historically accurate, common name for the variety giving credit to the seedsmen that originally released it. Informational References:
