We think this is the best choice in a savoy cabbage for home gardeners because the head is relatively small. 2-4 lb. heads are blue-green on the outside with tightly packed, crinkly, yellowish leaves on the inside. As with all of our hybrid cabbage, Alcosa doesn’t mind being planted close to its neighbors. Fine flavor which improves with cooler weather. 30 seeds
Indoors- 4-6 weeks before last frost and 1/4” deep with soil temperature at 65-75 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out just before last frost.
Outdoors – Early spring until mid summer for fall crops. Plant 1/2” deep, 12-15” apart for small headed varieties and 20-30” for large headed varieties
Harvest- If the heads feel solid by pushing on them lightly they are ready to harvest. Harvest as soon as possible for early varieties to prevent splitting. Later maturing varieties will hold longer.
Tips- Mulch, provide fertilizer, and adequate moisture for optimum growth.
