Brassica oleracea var. capitata

A traditional European specialty, these handsome cabbages have a solid, rounded, tightly wrapped base of leaves that taper to a point. Flavor is consistently mild and remarkably sweet. Enjoy Conehead’s great fresh flavor and crunchy texture sliced up in salads, shredded for coleslaw, or quickly sauté with a little cumin or caraway seeds, or add to tasty stirfries. Heads grow quickly and are uniform and heavy for their size with strong wrapper leaves and great weather tolerance.

To Start Indoors Start seeds 4-5 weeks before last expected spring frost. Sow 1 in. apart in seed starting mix, cover 1/2 in. deep and keep evenly moist. Provide a strong light source until seedlings are  ready to plant out. When several inches tall, transplant seedlings 10 in. apart into rich soil in full sun, after gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions.

To Start Directly Outdoors When all danger of frost is over, plant in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Sow groups of 2-3 seeds 10 in. apart in rows spaced 1 ft. apart. When seedlings are several inches tall, thin to 1 strong plant every 10 in.

Mild Winter Areas: Sow again midsummer for a fall crop.

Growing Notes: Cabbage needs full sun and rich, well-drained soil to produce firm, sweet heads. To avoid stunting growth, don't let seedlings get crowded before thinning or transplanting. Keep weeded and evenly watered. Feed monthly with fish emulsion or any high nitrogen fertilizer. Use non-toxic B.T. (Bacillus thuringiensis) for caterpillar pests. Floating row covers provide a good barrier method to exclude pests. Remove covers when heads begin to form.
