Rawson's Volunteer

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Rawson’s Volunteer is the newest variety offered and is the earliest. In a test made on our trial grounds at Arlington, it was ready for marketing fully eight or ten days in advance of any other. It bears a striking resemblance to the French variety known as the Etampes, also an extremely early sort; the heads are firm and solid, and the leaves grow in very compact form, so that they may be planted very close."—Rawson, 1892
