The cristata group:

Near flowering the plant forms a comb with a curl on top.
There are two types: the cockscomb with thick curls of the “Neo” series  and the more flat form of the  “Bombay” series, of course also with a curl but less thick. Next to that old varieties exist of the global ( round ) forms, common called “brain types”. Those are these days old fashioned, worldwide hardly grown, and we don’t have that in our assortment.
