Danish Ballhead Cabbage (90 days, Heirloom)

Germ 7-12 days
Heirloom 1887
A late fall and storage variety with medium-size heads of blue-green. Exceptionally good keeper with a pleasing flavor and texture. Introduced in 1887 by Burpee and remains a standard storage favorite today. Great sauerkraut variety. 30 seeds

PLANTING:

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.

great non-hybrid storage cabbage

I bought this cabbage seed particularly because I wanted the option of saving seeds. I haven't yet, but I like the way it grows and tastes, so have kept growing it in case I do get around to seed saving.
