Golden Acre Cabbage (55 Days)

A very early round headed cabbage often used for pack sales and for forcing. Heads are ball shaped and can grow close to 5 pounds so size isn’t sacrificed for earliness. Short stemmed with few outer leaves, the flavor of Golden Acre is excellent.

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 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.

    Great cabbage

    I never grew cabbage before. I started them indoors during the winter. By the time I set them out in a place that gets only 5 or 6 of direct sun, they looked pretty rough--spindly and etiolated. I planted them 12 inches apart in all directions and just below the first true leaves, using black fabric **** guard. Fertilized with 10-10-10 granules at planting and later with dilute liquid ferilizer. I used a light dusting of diatomaceous earth periodically and sprayed with Thuricide BT. Almost zero bug holes and those were in the throw away leaves.! Every single plant grew great and formed a nice head about 5-6 inches across. Delicious! This is a nice cabbage when you don't want huge heads. This will be my go to cabbage in the future.
