What are the pros? color, slug resistance
What are the cons? they need a lot of room
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.
