GONZALES MINI CABBAGE (F1 hybrid 55 day)

How often do you use the whole cabbage? These early, very firm, softball size heads are just the right size for most cabbage meals, even for a family. Once cut they produce a number of tennis ball sized heads. They can be planted more closely together than other cabbages. 

30 seeds


Germination: 7-12 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 65-85 degrees F.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2” deep

Outside Sowing: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 50 degrees F. Sow 2-3 seeds every 12-15” apart for small headed varieties, 20-30” for large headed varieties. Thin to the strongest seedling per space. Sow in midsummer for fall crops. Germination is slower at lower soil temperatures.

Starting Indoors:  4-6 weeks before last frost , sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Provide 65-75 degree F soil temperature for optimum germination. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant out just before last frost.

How much does a packet plant: 10-12 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 varieties will hold longer.

Tips: Needs to be provided with fertile soil, rich in organic matter from the very beginning of its growth in the garden. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

Winner and a perfect size

Never had any luck with cabbage until I grew this last year. Heads are great for coleslaw.

Gonsales cabbage

This is my favorite cabbage because I can fit green onions , dilll or cilantro in between, because it's so compact. Even though the heads are small, they are very tight so they make quite a bit of slaw for their size..


Small is good

My favorite early cabbage. I plant a lot and put them close together intending to take every other one out as they come to size but are not real firm for early eating. They are the right size and are sweet and delicious steamed or chopped in salads. I start again toward the end of June for a fall crop.


Love these little heads

These grow great in So. Calif. I am a single woman and these are the perfect size. Love the taste.
