Among 18 varieties of Savoy cabbage and 28 cabbage varieties tested in the field under artificial infection, only 11.4% of Savoy cabbage plants showed resistance and there were no marked intervarietal differences, but 86.4% of heads reached marketable quality, while the cabbages included some varieties with high resistance, viz. Bohmerwaldkohl, Bindsachsener, Krimicke line 1/3 and Oregon lines 100, 123 and 140. The cabbage Grandslam F1 showed a high degree of tolerance; although only 4.2% of its plants were without symptoms of infection, all plants produced marketable heads and none died during growth.
