Quick Start Cabbage (F1 Hybrid 55 Days)

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 pound 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 


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.

Beautiful and tasty cabbage

I got my seeds promptly. The Quick Start cabbage grew so well. I grew it under hoops with row cover material. I didn't use any pesticide and the row cover did the trick. I harvested two perfect heads so far. I planted the seeds at different times to space the harvest out.
