Tough little cabbage plants

What are the pros? Texture, flavor, hardiness

What are the cons? Cabbage worms love them.

Review:

If you live in a hot climate and happen to plant these a little too late, DON'T GIVE UP HOPE! I almost pulled up plants I thought had bolted and were not going to form cabbages, and BOOM! In Late May/Early June they exploded, even with temperatures going up in my Zone 10a Inland Valley garden. Texture and flavor are great, and I grew up hating cabbage! Aside from fighting off the Cabbage moths successfully using 1/2" netting and Bt, and slugs using stale beer in half-buried tuna cans, I enjoyed the experience as a first-time cabbage raiser. I never realized how big and strong cabbage plants are in the ground, so this has been a learning experience. I'm motivated to start them again earlier next year, maybe under a low-tunnel to protect from frost.

Never formed heads
Easy to Grow 2.0
EarlyMaturity 0.5
 

What are the pros? Can be grown in fall

What are the cons? Never formed heads

Review:

I planted these in September - it's now December 30th and they still haven't formed heads. They germinated fast but haven't done much since. We've had a very cold & wet fall/winter for Oregon so maybe that has something to do with it but I thought for sure I'd be serving this for Christmas dinner. I haven't put much effort into growing them because we have had so much rain. I haven't yanked them - waiting to see if they take off in ~February. In the meantime, I'm single handedly keeping the slugs fed over the winter.

What are the pros? Good for short growing season

What are the cons? Insects love them

Review:

These are adorable. Started indoors and planted out in early June, these were attacked by some evil beastie immediately and almost every morning I would find another totally decapitated (this also happened to our broccoli and other cabbages as well). Only a few survived that initial onslaught, but after the initiall seedling attack, they grew well, and quickly, and the resulting cabbages were delicious and beautiful. We're growing more in our fall garden, but spraying them daily with pepper and garlic spray, which seems to to protecting them.

Our favorite cabbage
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Wonderful flavor, tender

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is another Baker Creek staple for our winter crops. This cabbage has always been extremely reliable for us, and is of a size that is smaller than some other cabbage varieties, which makes it easier for us to sell. This is a very tender, tasty cabbage and we encourage buyers to eat it fresh as a lettuce-replacement in salads, which is our favorite use for this variety.

Love this cabbage

What are the pros? Great taste, easy to grow

What are the cons? a few stunted plants each year

Review:

I grew this cabbage for 2 years and will grow it again this year. It tastes great just pan fried with onions and butter but I really grow it for sauerkraut. Makes great sauerkraut and it lasts well into the late fall so I get many nice sized mature cabbages in Northern New York. I start the seeds in the house in April and by October I'm very happy with the harvest.
