Organic Chieftan Savoy Cabbage Seeds
Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Chieftan Savoy Cabbage seeds have 110 days to maturity. With bright green crinkly, leaves, this is one of the sweetest, best tasting organic cabbage varieties. Round heads have a short core and reach 2-3 kg. at maturity. Use the supple leaves to wrap fillings, chop it fresh for a beautifully textured coleslaw or try fermenting it for a gourmet kimchi.
Direct seed as soon as soil can be worked or start indoors 6-8 weeks before frost and plant out when plants are 4-6 weeks old. Sow seed .5 cm deep and 8 cm apart. Thin plants to 20-30 inches for early cabbages. You can direct seed in summer for a fall crop. Shallow rooted plants benefit from mulch. Use floating row covers to protect plants if flea beetles are a problem.
