Head weight ranged from 1.73 kg to 0.61 kg; diameter from 1 7.55 cm to 12.40 cm; and head length from 16.28 cm to 13.79 cm. No significant difference was observed in head weight among cultivars Río Verde (with the highest score), Bravo and Big Cropper; nor between Titanic and Market Prize. Río Verde had the largest diameter. There were no significant differences in diameter between cultivars Río Verde and Big Cropper; nor among Big Cropper, Bravo, Titanic, Market Prize and Superette. Río Verde scored the highest in appearance. Appearance of other cabbage cultivars was not significantly different. All cultivars scored high in terms of flavor, texture and general acceptability by the taste panel, both raw and cooked. In general terms, Río Verde, Bravo, Titanic, Market Prize and Big Cropper scored the highest.
