Cabbage is a cool season crop that will develop quickly (around 65 days).  So, you can plant it for both Spring and Fall  (sow in mid-July for a second crop).  Harvest when the head becomes firm.

 

Varieties

  • Big Flat Head: (80 days, 5 lbs) Flat specialty cabbage produces sweet, tender heads with a very short core and less dense interior for easy slicing and shredding.
  • Red Express: (55 days, 2 lbs) Very early red cabbage.  Small plants with dense, solid oval heads.
  • Stonehead: (50 days, 2 lbs)  Green round heads hold well in the garden without splitting.  All-America Selections winner.
