This extra early maturing ball head type cabbage grows vigorously. You will notice the changes each day as it begins to head up and create a 3 lb ball. The heads are held close to the ground on a short stalk and can be planted densely. Quick Start is highly resistant to yellows and tastes great. 30 seeds
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.
