(Brassica oleracea) A Danish variety with roots dating back to the 15th century. Excellent producer of 10" solid, round heads weighing roughly 5-7lbs each. Our most reliable variety-- seems to have fewer insect problems than other varieties we've tried. Full-season and well-suited for winter storage. 110 days to harvest. Approx. 100 seeds/pkt.
CULTURE: Sow seeds indoors approx. 8 weeks before last frost. Transplant outdoors as soon as soil can be worked or approximately 5 weeks before last frost. Fall crops can be started approximately 3 months before last frost and set outdoors once seedlings have put out at least three true leaves. Cabbage plants are heavy feeders and therefore will benefit from a heavy dose of well-composted manure. Floating row covers and biological controls are effective tools to protect against damaging insects.
Every seed has sprouted! Healthy starts for the garden.
I am in an interesting spot, but thought to remind growers to precook your soil before planting your starts to insure healthy starts. I forgot which cost me everything last year. No fault to the seed...all mine. I just plain forgot and we happen to get every kind of problem in the river valley without prevention...even sometimes with it. Store bought soil. The seeds all germinated...heat rope underneath enhanced this and brings better plants. Some great seed, packaging, experience with company.
