Glory of Enkhuizen Cabbage (Heirloom 90 days)

 

Our grower unexpectedly discontinued this variety.

Try Danish Ballhead as a substitute for Glory of Enkhuizen 

 

Heirloom 1890’s
This variety is described by DM Ferry as a “second early variety”, not as early as some, but much earlier than late varieties. It is named after a coastal town on the Zuidersee in Holland. Heads run 6-10 lbs and are a lovely dark blue-green in color. The delicious cabbages are vigorous, spreading, and resist splitting.

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.

    Excellent in my garden.

    Of all the cabbages I have planted in my garden over many years this one gave me by far the most reliable results. They grow large tight heads that I have used fresh or to make sauerkraut.
