OUT-OF-STOCK FOR 2022. 62 days. Extra early, red, round cabbage that grows as a compact plant. Gorgeous red/purple colored heads are small/medium sized (2-4lbs), perfect for the home gardener. Good for spring, summer, and fall plantings. We love cabbage because it is easy to grow, produces a lot of food, and stores well. We like to use red cabbage to make braised cabbage, kraut, and as an ingredient in Mike’s farm stew. This strain was selected by our friend Nash Huber to be extra early and uniform. HM

Start cabbage seeds indoors 4/1 at 72-85° (can use a heating mat). Days to germination: 5-8. Transplant outside 5/1, 18” apart. Or, sow cabbage seeds directly outside anytime 5/1 – 7/15. If sowing seeds outside, plant 3-4 seeds together in a group ¼ ” deep, spaced 18” between groups. Keep seeds evenly moist until germination. Thin to the strongest plant in each group. Protect cabbage plants from deer, groundhogs, and rabbits. Cabbage plants may be eaten by several different species of caterpillars. If they cause damage, hand remove caterpillars or spray organic BT.
