Organic Red Express Cabbage Seeds
Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Red Express Cabbage seeds have 62 days to maturity. A beautiful little red cabbage that heads up extra early. Compact 1-2 kg. heads are very uniform and are quite resistant to splitting for such an early cabbage. Tasty raw, cooked or pickled and makes great slaw or kimchee.
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.
