Savoy cabbages are the most hardy of all;
their very thin, ruffled, and blistered leaves are more delicate
in flavor than ordinary cabbage.
Large, medium green heads average 4-6 pounds, and are perfect for stuffing, braising, and soups as well as winter salad and slaw.
Takes lots of frost and snow.
BOTANICAL NAME: Brassica oleracea var. capitata
Start seedlings in flats. Transplant seedlings 15" apart, making sure to planet deeper than they were in the flat--with the soil just under the first set of leaves. Prefers rich soil, full sun, plenty of calcium, and evenly most soil. Drying, overcrowding, or lack of nutrients can prevent heading, so use mulch and shadecloth if necessary and don't space plants so closely that the leaves overlap. Matures 9-16 weeks. Sow from late spring to early summer for cutting during early winter.
