Early California F1 is a Clonal hybrid. This variety is cylindrical in shape, with slight, tapering spear tips. The spears are large, very tight in warm conditions, and smooth due to the bud scales being tightly oppressed. Coloration is dark green with a little purple coloration on the bud scales, butt, and tip. This variety is extremely productive.
Early California F1 spear production can start very early, and can extend through very late in the cutting season. This Cultivar variety is a good shipper, and can out produce previous UC and New Jersey Cultivars.
