85 days. Incredibly graceful appearance would qualify Kalibos for the flower garden! But this European variety is eminently useful as well. The conical, long, heart-shaped, 2-pound heads of deep red are on the small side, ideal for a single dish. The color is so beautiful when the leaves are shredded into slaw. Flavor is mild and very sweet. And they’re good keepers as well, allowing you to enjoy your fall harvest well into winter.

North western Wisconsin and these were planted right in the ground in June, started enjoying them in September I think. Will buy more for next year!! And they're so nice with the size bc only me and my two year old eat it, so it doesn't go to waste!

What are the pros? Beautiful and tasty

Review:

Started from seed indoors in early March. Harvested in late July. Only one made it to maturity, but not due to plant vigor, but pests! I highly recommend using crop covers for all cole crops. At maturity and as noted by other reviews, Kalibos looks like a big purple rose. I took photos before harvesting and have to admit, I was a bit reluctant because it was so big, pretty and healthy. I was rewarded with a 3 1/2 pound head after the outer leaves were removed. Bright magenta in color, it was more round with a point than conical as shown on the seed packet. The head of this cabbage was nice and solid. Unlike some Summer harvest cabbage that are "skunky" and bitter, Kalibos was sweet and crunchy with no bitterness. Will grow this one again.

Review:

Great looks, great taste, we only planted a couple, no special care and we ate them here in Ontario in August I think it was. Will plant more for sure! Bugs did not seem to bother them either.

Review:

Not sure if there was a name change, but I bought Vysoke, a discontinued variety that looks just like these from this company. Planted these indoors and transplanted 1st of June in zone 4 when they were 2" inches tall. If you look at it and it looks like huge leaves, but no cabbage, just wait about 3-4 weeks with some good watering. Don't worry, the frost won't hurt them. I harvested mine around the 1st of November, even after a few bouts of snow and it was fine uncovered. These need a double take.These are a beautiful violet color, and look like a gigantic rose! After harvest, I was looking at them in the garage and saw that their leaves have this waxy iridescence to them depending on the light, almost looks like fairy dust! No bugs or moth holes! In retrospect, I think my neglectful watering, added to a hot summer may have had an effect on its slower growth because it had a growth spurt after some wet, cooler weather, but I still say totally worth it, but maybe not for the novice.

I tried growing these and it was only after a couple of months that I started to see a tiny head resembling the picture. It was mostly purple leaves.
