A generalization of the Eden model is proposed as a model of polymer crystallization. The model exhibits all three growth regimes. It produces the Seto-Frank model in one limit and demonstrates departures from the Seto-Frank model induced by discreteness of the crystal. It is able to predict curved growth fronts; in fact it predicts that circular crystals are to be expected in regime III.
