Our carefully selected collection of cabbages will keep the kitchen stocked with tasty hearts for up to nine months of the year. Steamed cabbage retains its colour and goodness better than boiled!
The collection includes 10 each of the following varieties:-
Tundra F1 AGM We know of no hardier winter cabbage than Tundra, for it will stand defiantly in good condition from October right through to April. Tundra has large, solid, crisp cabbage heads which are full of flavour and come highly recommended by the D.T. Brown team.
Traviata F1 AGM Traviata is a first rate savoy cabbage which looks attractive enough for the flower garden! Not just a good looker, it is also really hardy and disease-resistant. Traviata's solid, dark heads, are full of flavour and goodness and can be cut from October through to the following February.
Marabel F1 Cabbage Marabel is an improvement on the much loved January King which combines vigour and the characteristic red tinged heads, which are always solid, dense and heavy. Marabel is full of old-fashioned, January King flavour, it is ready from November and can be cut until March.
Capricorn F1 Capricorn is a versatile, pointed cabbage which is so versatile and can be harvested from November through to March. Capricorn has that lovely 'spring cabbage' sweetness and texture, which even those who "don't like cabbage" just can't resist. We love it shredded raw into salads!
Following on from our summer cropping range, our autumn and winter cropping varieties will ensure you have a tasty and delicious selection of vegetables to harvest from autumn through to next spring. As for our summer range, all are grown at our nursery, in their own cell of compost, and have been selected for their flavour and reliability. Despatches will begin in August for immediate planting.
