This variety of cabbage will add vibrant colors to your garden and table! Its crisp and tender heads reach 7" in diameter and have better resistance to splitting than Danish cabbage. It stores exceptionally well for an early cabbage.
You should start your cabbage seeds 8 to 12 weeks before the last expected frost by planting them at ½" depth in individual pots. Transplant them into the garden 2 or 3 weeks before the last expected frost, spacing them 12 to 18 inches apart, and be sure to bury the stems halfway.
Cabbage enjoys cool weather, but in case of heavy frost, cover your plants. Mulch them to regulate soil temperature and retain moisture, as overly dry soil could cause the cabbage to split.
Harvest the cabbages as soon as they are firm and reach a good size. Small cabbages tend to be more tender, while large, fall-grown cabbages store well for the winter.
