A refined, open-pollinated cabbage with round green heads encasing beautiful, tender white hearts.
Plants mature early and are compact, perfect for dense plantings with tighter spacing while still producing good yields of marketable heads. Heads are round, solid, and have a delicate, crunchy flavor that is suitable for most kitchen preparations. When cooked, the spicy cabbage flavor becomes mild and buttery. An excellent OP for the serious cabbage grower.

When to Sow
Direct sow when daytime soil temps warm to 75°F. Start seeds indoors or in cold frames 4-6 weeks before planting date. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 75°F but seeds will germinate in soils as cool as 50°F. Early varieties can be transplanted after danger of hard frost has passed. Mid-late season storage or processing types can be transplanted in June-early July for fall harvest. Napa cabbages are best direct seeded or transplanted in mid-May for July harvest.
Cabbage is mature when the tight outer leaf of the head begins to fold back on itself. Cut heads flat on underside.
Cabbage is best stored at 32°F, with high humidity and good air circulation. Green, actively growing, disease-free heads keep best.
