Organic Cabbage, Express Red (1/4 lb)

Organic Cabbage, Express Red (1/4 lb)

Excellent in Slaw or Pickled

Cabbage - Express Red - Brassica oleracea (Capitata group)

Biennial Express Red's uniform heads grow to approximately 3-4 lb on a compact frame with few outer leaves. This early variety is relatively split resistant and stores well. Delicious when raw in coleslaw or other salads, it is also an excellent addition to soups and casseroles, or pickled.

Did You Know? Cabbage is high in vitamin C, folate, and antioxidants.

Soil & Water: Cabbage prefers rich, fertile soil with a pH of 6.0-7.5. Water heavily from planting to head formation, then water moderately to prevent splitting. Cabbage is a hardy crop, grown best in cool spring and fall temperatures.

Planting & Growing: Start indoors 8 weeks before last frost, or outdoors March through June. Fast growing or stressed cabbages tend to split and bolt; cutting into the root system will slow growth and prevent splitting. Provide transplants with cutworm shield collars.

Harvesting & Storage: Early types of cabbage grow and mature quickly and must be harvested promptly to avoid splitting. Heads store well in cool (32°F-40°F), moist locations for 5-6 months.

Soil Temperature: 60-85°F
Planting Depth: 1/2"-1"
Germination: 5-10 Days
Height At Maturity: 8"-12" 
Days To Maturity: 55-75 Days
Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Approx Seeds per 1/4 Pound: 18,900 Seeds
