Violaceo di Verona Cabbage

98% of 100

120 Days. A vintage heirloom cabbage that originated in the region of Verona in northern Italy, with stunning, lightly savoyed violet and green leaves that become more vibrant as the cool weather sets in. Thanks to an appreciation for traditional cuisine, Italians have preserved this variety from antiquity. Whether the impressive temperature tolerance of these hardy plants or the beautiful violet leaves, this treasured heirloom has been kept alive despite the general downsizing of seed diversity. Medium-sized round heads mature 120 days from seeding. With violet-colored wrapper leaves and yellow-green interior leaves, they are an ideal choice for a fall/winter harvest. They are frost hardy, and in warmer areas can be harvested until New Year.
