Violaceo di Verona Cabbage

         
 
2 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
A vintage heirloom cabbage that originated in the region of Verona in Northern Italy, with stunning, lightly savoyed violet and green leaves that get more vibrant as the cool fall and winter weather set in. Thanks to an appreciation for traditional cuisine, Italians have preserved this variety from antiquity. Perhaps it is the impressive heat and cool tolerance of these hardy plants, or the beautiful violet leaves that have kept this treasured heirloom alive despite general downsizing of seed diversity. Medium sized round heads mature 120 days from seeding. With violet colored wrapper leaves and yellow-green inside leaves, they are an ideal choice for a fall/winter harvest. It is frost hardy, and in warmer areas can be harvested until New Year.

What are the pros? color, slug resistance

What are the cons? they need a lot of room

Review:

This is truly a gorgeous cabbage, especially after a cold spell when the purple-blue colors increase. It makes a huge head, basketball size or larger and takes a LOT of room in the garden. I'd give each of them 3 feet of space. The cabbage loopers loved this cabbage so the outer leaves were pretty much a loss, but the slugs that ruined so many of my other cabbages did little to no damage on this one. The interior cabbage is very pale compared to its colorful outside. It easily made over a half-gallon of sauerkraut once it fermented down. I only had room for a few in the garden so put my extras in the front border. There was too much shade for them to head up, but the foliage was beautiful so I might do that again.

What are the pros? This plant glows.

What are the cons? none so far.

Review:

I forget when I planted these, but I planted a lot. They are gorgeous. They are just starting to head up, and the leaves are a grayish green with a kind of purple glow. They are not as defined in their colors as in the photos, much more diffuse in my plants. But they glow. I go out and talk to them. I think I have it a few notches higher than those French people who call their sweethearts "mon petit chou". I started some more, which I will transplant presently (November 2018). Considering starting some more for spring. Can't wait to taste them!!
