What are the pros? Big heads
What are the cons? Had a problem with bugs
They are easy to grow and get huge heads. The only problem was the bugs. The one head was 8# when the rain split it.

What are the pros? easy to grow
What are the cons? bugs liked them
I got these as my free gift on both my seed orders this year. Excellent germination and grew very fast during cold weather with big beautiful leaves that were beginning to form perfect heads. Never got to a full cabbage head however, the bugs just absolutely adored these in central NC and I don't want to spray anything on a leafy green that I plan on eating. Every kind of bug imaginable was on them so they must be good eats. I'm going to give it a go with a fall planting and try to grow these in winter based on some of the other reviews as they did well until the warmer weather set in (with all of the bugs). Should make a great Fall and Winter crop based upon other reviews. Can't wait to see how they taste.

What are the pros? cold hardy, very dependable
We grow this Brunswick cabbage along with the Cour di Bue cabbage, and love them both. Cour di Bue matures about 3 weeks before Brunswick. The Brunswicks can be huge. We harvest as we need them, so many are left in the ground and get bigger. These survive our winter frosts easily, even as small seedlings. We harvest these at basketball-size around St. Patrick's Day for sale at a local produce store and they are a hit. It's hard to not be impressed by massive cabbage at St. Paddy's day. These get big, store well, and taste great.

What are the pros? Great in soup.
What are the cons? Small head.
My first time growing cabbage, some of the heads were small, but this made for a great way to make my garden four seasons. These will continue growing through the snow. I harvested five heads in late December (northern Illinois), so these make a great way to extend the season of your garden. Survived a nine inch snowstorm and just kept going.
