This mild flavoured Cabbage can be substituted in any recipe calling for Cabbage! Forms solid yellow-white oval heads which collapse at maturity enabling easy separation of leaves. Average 2 kg (4 lb) at maturity. Great for cabbage rolls, boiled, steamed, pan or stir-fried, stuffed and pickled–its mild flavour is excellent for all of these.
Seed outdoors as soon as weather and soil conditions permit. Cover seed lightly with soil, 6 – 7 seeds per 30 cm (1 ft) of row. Average garden soil and a sunny location are ideal. Thin to 30 cm (1 ft) apart when 7 cm (3 in) high. For earlier Cabbage start indoors 2 to 3 weeks in advance of intended date for moving the plants to the garden. Germinates best at 21 C (70 F) in 7 to 10 days. Reduce temperature after germination to 15 C (65 F) and provide additional light to help prevent stretching and to tone up plants before transplanting outside. Several sowings of Cabbage 10 days apart ensure a fresh supply into fall. Keep well watered during hot temperatures to avoid bolting.
