Review:

I am NOT an experienced gardener but I put a bunch of plants in the ground to see what they'd do. I had some rat tail radishes in one row and they had a nice and cool little space under their branches that I nestled these cabbage seedlings into in mid summer. They were pretty shaded most of the time but when fall rolled around and temps cooled off they started growing bigger, no head at this time. I cleaned up the garden in late fall and the radishes were pulled but I left the cabbage just to see what they would do. In December after a few snow falls and melts these plants looked dead but I checked them one last time. They had softball sized heads tucked into their dead leaves. I chopped em up, cooked them with some garlic...BESTEST CABBAGES EVEAH! They had a sweet & complex flavor. Kids devoured it all! I got these from barley amended clay soil. No fertilizer and no mulches, only drip irrigation. This year I'm planting more and making the soil better but I'll let them freeze up again.

Review:

This is the first cabbage I've grown. I admit that I was silly enough to think of cabbage as a relatively bland plant that probably wouldn't taste much different when plucked from my garden than it did when bought from the grocery store. WOW, is there a difference! This is absolutely delicious cabbage that had me scouring the garden to devour every leaf. It's forgiving, too. I'm new to year-round gardening in San Jose, and I put the seeds into the ground in mid-November. I still got beautiful, big heads of cabbage in the spring. It likes its water and didn't do as well in drip-irrigated plots, but even the smaller heads were jewels in flavor.
