Personality Profile:: Must have been named by a native of the far north, someone who experienced this cultivar's outstanding tolerance of cold and harsh climates. We find Great Northern to be the John Wayne of our Porcelain lineup; honest, tall, a hero with a soft spot for others in need of warmth. Reliable and consistent, we're expanding our stock of Great Northern and hope to offer it in Bulk in years to come.

Our most vigorous grower every year. A great addition to any garden or farm.
