Type A large headed hybrid cabbage variety for the fresh market. STAR 3311 has been introduced specifically for the areas where Black Rot is a serious problem.
Early maturing. Approximately 75 - 85 days from transplant to maturity in summer. Maturity is very uniform with a high first cut percentage.
A medium to large frame that has an upright leaf habit. A plant population of 28 000 plants per ha is recommended for single head marketing, and 35 - 45 000 plants per ha for bags. Plant population will influence head size. For larger head size the plant population should be reduced to suit your needs.
STAR 3311 has very firm flat-round shaped heads with an average head size (without frame leaves) of between 2,5 - 3,0 kg with an excellent flavour. The colour of STAR 3311 is a typical grey-green which is highly sought after by market agents and hawkers. Care should be taken not to let the crop mature past the optimal period to prevent splitting. STAR 3311 has a very high first cut percentage.
STAR 3311 has shown good field resistance to black rot.
