Organic Golden-Acre Cabbage Seeds
Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Golden-Acre Cabbage seeds have 62 days to maturity. Early fresh market green cabbage with great taste. Compact plants can be grown at close spacing for beautiful, small round heads perfect for summer and early fall harvest. Not a storage cabbage. Solid heads average 1.5 kg and have a nice crunchy texture and sweet taste. Good for slaw and braising. This heirloom predates 1927.
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.
