A very special heirloom red cabbage,

hard to find in the US, with excellent flavor and a good keeper.

Deep purple color is not lost in cooking or pickling.

Slightly flattened heads 7" wide are very firm and dense. Plant early spring for early fall harvest or July for winter use.

Waxy heads hold well in cold wet weather. Also handles heat well.

BOTANICAL NAME: Brassica oleracea var. capitata

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:

Start in flats, in early spring (or late summer for fall crop). Transplant seedlings 15" apart, in well-composted soil. Plant deeper than in the flats, with soil up to the first set of leaves. If soil tends to be acid, lime well. Matures in 9-16 weeks. This variety has excellent resistance to rainy weather and pests, but it is important not to let slugs get inside the heads-hand-picking, organic slug pellets, bowls of beer (to drown in) and a circle of wood ash around each plant can all be of help.
