What are the pros? Easy to grow, Pest resistant
What are the cons? Slow to mature
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!
