How often do you use the whole cabbage? These early, very firm, softball size heads are just the right size for most cabbage meals, even for a family. Once cut they produce a number of tennis ball sized heads. Naturally they can be planted more closely together than other cabbages. 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.
