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 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.

PLANTING

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.
