Tender, 3 to 4-lb, pointed, oxheart-type heads; very good for home use or specialty markets. We offer quality Italian seed for this old European heirloom. This type of cabbage was very popular 150 years ago. Fairly early and of superb quality.

Review:

Grew from seed indoors, germination was strong. Very healthy and prolific and the cabbage moths agreed. I didn't keep them covered and I paid a price (wasn't interested in using Sevin and didn't know about bt until too late). Will start my fall seeding in the next few weeks and they will be covered from transplanting to cutting. Chopped every plant off at the ground this weekend and replaced with a variety of peppers that too came from here so it won't be a complete failure as they are doing well where their friends have been in the ground for the past month and a half already (more on those later in the season and on their respective page). Zone 8a

Review:

This was my first attempt at growing cabbage and I am in love. I planted the start out in late April and harvested the mature cabbage in mid July here in Southwest VA. Other than keeping the plants covered with a net and planting into rich compost, I gave the plant no special care or attention during it's growing period. I cooked it with some onions and a little vinegar and sweetener and it's definitely a winner! I have two more out there growing and can't decide whether to keep admiring them or just eat them already!

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.

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.

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.
