Named for the appearance of the large seedheads that look like overloaded ice cream cones. Selected out of 'Brightest Brilliant', this new variety reaches 6-7' tall with little branching when spaced a foot apart in rows 16" apart. The large heads ripen uniformly, making harvest more straight-forward than in varieties with many large branches. Seeds are white or buff in color. We are still learning the growing range and traits of this variety. Excellent yield and performance overall in Kevin Murphy’s 2013 WSU trials. Farm Original Variety!
