Excalibur Cabbage (F1 Hybrid, 78 Days)

A processing type with medium to large heads perfect for sauerkraut and coleslaw. Fusarium yellow resistant, black rot, and thrip tolerant. 

30 seeds 


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 suggested measurement. Transplant a week or two before last frost. Sow in late spring to transplant out for fall crops. 

Sowing Outdoors: In spring when 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 soil is not fertile. Provide adequate, even moisture for the optimum growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

Excalibur Cabbage

Excalibur is the replacement for Krautman. We make our own sauerkraut, so grow this as the raw material.

Nice ***** Cabbage

Nice solid heads that were around 6-7lbs. Made 50lbs of ***** with these last year. Here it is January and the ***** is still nice and crispy. Makes a good coleslaw also. Ordering this variety again for ***** and coleslaw.
