Description: Heirloom from the late 1800's. Good storage cabbage, with large heads, 5-8 pounds each and 8-10" across with reddish-purple leaves. Excellent addition to slaw, salad, stir fried or use for a delicious sauerkraut.
Planting Instructions: 90-100 days. Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. Sow 1/4-1/2" deep into a starting mix. Keep evenly moist until germination. Provide plenty of light after the seedlings emerge. Transplant into well-worked soil after the danger of frost has passed. Space plants about 15-18" apart in rows 24-36" apart in a location that gets plenty of sun. Mulch around plants to retain moisture and even out temperature extremes.
