Alcosa Cabbage (F1 Hybrid 72 Days)

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. Disease resistance- fusarium yellows and tip burn

30 seeds 

PLANTING

Brassica oleracea

Germination: 7-12 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 65-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 4-6 weeks before last frost or 4-6. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water-soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of the suggested measurement. Transplant a week or two before the last frost. Sow in late spring to transplant out for fall crops. 

Sowing Outdoors: In spring when the soil temperature reaches at least 60ºF. Sow 2-3 seeds every 15-18” apart for small headed varieties, 24-36” for large headed varieties. Thin to the strongest seedling per space. Sow in early summer for fall crops. Germination is slower at lower soil temperatures.

How much does a packet plant: 15-20 foot single row

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 storage varieties will hold longer.

Tips: A heavy feeder. Needs to grow in fertile soil, rich in organic matter. Amend with compost if the soil is not fertile. Provide adequate, even moisture for optimum growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

Success on the first try

This was my first time growing cabbage and I was surprised they grew so successfully! have a small garden plot fenced off from rabbits and groundhogs. I just planted a few seeds directly in the soil sometime in May I think (I’m in zone 6). I wasn’t expecting much, it was more of an experiment, so I watered them now and then but didn’t worry about them much. My husband likes to cook with Savoy cabbage so I tried this variety. I harvested my first head of cabbage this morning and was so happy with it!

Alcosa Cabbage

I have grown this mini savoy cabbage in the past and loved its small size. I stopped growing it for a while because the rabbits also loved it. This year I plan to put cages over them to keep the critters out.

I breath a sigh of relief...

...when my vegetable seed catalog arrives. The wide varieties of choices are a treat and your competitors can't and don't tough your prices.

Alcosa Cabbage

I have been growing this cabbage for as long as you have offered it in your catalog. Love the size and flavor. Here in California, it is out winter crop so we are just planting our seedlings now. It is also beautiful growing in the garden.
