85 days. Incredibly graceful appearance would qualify Kalibos for the flower garden! But this European variety is eminently useful as well. The conical, long, heart-shaped, 2-pound heads of deep red are on the small side, ideal for a single dish. The color is so beautiful when the leaves are shredded into slaw. Flavor is mild and very sweet. And they’re good keepers as well, allowing you to enjoy your fall harvest well into winter.

What are the pros? Good taste, beautiful color

What are the cons? Susceptible to cabbage moth

Review:

My cabbages mostly did not form heads, as they became hosts to cabbage moth caterpillars. I did get a couple small heads of cabbage very late in the summer. The flavor was good. Perhaps if you live in an area with fewer cabbage moths or have a better way of controlling them, these would work out for you.

What are the pros? Beautiful, tasty

What are the cons? takes forever and a day

Review:

These are gorgeous- I fell in love with them when watching Charles Dowding's no-dig YouTube Channel and was super excited to see that Baker Creek had the seeds. For some reason I was under the impression that these were earlier season cabbage, but for me that was not so in zone 4. They sat all spring and summer, and I was pretty well convinced they weren't going to head up. They finally did in late August, early September. The heads are very small, but the plant takes up the typical amount of space that a larger cabbage would. So that's one thing to take into consideration. They are the best tasting cabbage I have ever had, though, so for me they're keepers. Such a pretty color and shape, and delicious flavor.

What are the pros? Pretty color, nice taste

What are the cons? No head

Review:

I left these plants in the ground from March all the way until December. The plants grew steadily, in fact, to larger than I expected, but none of them ever formed a head or anything that even resembled a head. It was just a large leafy bush on a stem. I did like the color and the taste was just like cabbage. I ate a few of the leafs.

What are the pros? Stunning and great for canning

What are the cons? None

Review:

First year with these but not the last! Easy to grow very little pest issues with very firm easy to slice hearts. The spiced cabbage only took 2 heads per batch of these large beauties and they held their colour through processing. Beautiful in the garden and on the pantry shelf!

What are the pros? Great color and flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

I started these indoors about 4 weeks before planting outside (2-3 weeks before last frost). I harvested my first head around the middle-end of july. For some reason, cabbage always takes a long time to produce heads for me, no matter the type. These formed heads well before my green cabbage though. They have a unique shape, sweet mild flavor and beautiful purple color all the way through. They resisted cabbage aphids (my nemesis) all the way until mid august.
