What are the pros? Heads well, handles cold temps

What are the cons? None so far

Review:

I grew cabbage for the first time this spring. Not an ideal season to grow them in Kentucky but I was willing to experiment. I planted about 2 dozen specimens mid March, one protected by row cover and one left without protection. None died when temperature dropped to 25?F. These did not have severe pest pressure but slugs were an issue. I began harvesting early June, I think if I had planted mid April the harvest would have been about the same time(will test next year). The heads of some were full before Brunswick ever began to set heads. Heads were tight and easy to evaluate by visual inspection. Great flavor and texture. Made wonderful slaw, no sauerkraut yet(maybe in the fall). Certainly a good short season cabbage for spring in Zone 6b. Never grown cabbage but I think I found a winner. Will probably keep a few heads over winter for seed.

Review:

This cabbage is tasty and grows so well. I have been eating cabbage since June and it is now January. I live in a mild climate but even when it got hot in the summer, it still maintained the heads.

Review:

We love this cabbage! It was incredibly easy to start from seed, indoors in March, and we had 100% germination. After danger of the last frost for our area, usually around Memorial Day, we transplanted the cabbages out to our garden. I only had one die after that. The other type of cabbage we got did equally as well, but was a magnet for cabbage loopers - not the Early Jersey! It had some nibbles on it, but that never seemed to slow it down. We lost 6 of our other cabbages before I started spraying with BT. As others have said, the outer leaves do get very wide, so plan your space accordingly. The only (possible?) downside to this cabbage was that it took 75 days after transplanting to feel ready to pick, but by then the heads were huge! We just picked three of the heads and each one was over 5 lbs. They were tightly packed, no bug damage after the outer most leaves, and very tasty! We will be growing this again, and more of it!

Review:

This is my first year growing cabbage. I had a failed attempt and brussel sprouts last year. I started these indoors and transplanted outside when I thought the weather was cooperating. I was a little wrong on that and I thought for sure that these little guys wouldn't survive. They did EXCELLENT. I planted a few extra in my side yard just because I didn't think they were going to make it. Needless to say, I've given one head away and sauteed up one for myself (I ate the WHOLE THING) with a little bit of bacon and salt and pepper; DIVINE! I am going to pick my last two tomorrow and then wait to see how the ones in my side yard do (it's extremely hot this week and last). I have some started for my fall garden which I hope to plant in another 4 or 5 weeks. I love the size of these guys. I did a lot of research on how to keep the horrible cabbage worm away and the best organic method I could find was to use an insect net of some sort (I choose a stroller net). It worked well.
