What are the pros? Texture, flavor, hardiness
What are the cons? Cabbage worms love them.
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.
