Red cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata f. rubra) not only looks good, but tastes great.
This is a vigourous and reliable cultivar which is perfect either for cooking for eating raw in salads. Ideal for coleslaw and pickling.
Prior to planting in late summer or autumn, thoroughly prepare the garden bed with plenty of organic matter such as compost and fertilise well. Cabbages grow best in a sunny position and plants should not be allowed to dry out in the warmer months.
Crops in 6-14 weeks from planting.
