Alcosa Baby Savoy Cabbage

62-65 days. Wrinkly, crinkly savoy is our pick for the prettiest of all Cabbages. Alcosa features dusky-blue outer leaves, a 6" lime-green head and a buttery yellow interior. The mild and tender leaves are a nutritious alternative to head Lettuce and are scrumptious braised in butter with a little fresh Thyme. An early spring planting yields heads in just 65 days, so you can be making coleslaw by July 4th. Replant in midsummer for crunchy autumn salads with shredded apples and toasted walnuts. (F1.)

One packet of about 100 seeds

  • Information
  • Cabbage is as nutritionally rich as it is versatile; enjoy it in Cabbage rolls, Basque Cabbage soup with white beans and sausage, coleslaw or sauerkraut. Cabbage is best grown as transplants, sown 6 weeks before setting out, 4 weeks prior to the last spring frost date, or in early summer for late fall harvest. Cabbage has a kingly appetite and prefers organically rich, neutral pH (6.5 to 6.8), well-draining soil. Cabbage favors cool weather, growing sweeter after being kissed by frost. Cabbage tastes best harvested when heads are wrapped tightly, in smaller sizes. A member of the Brassica family, Cabbage should be not be grown in the same site as other Brassicas for 4 years. Deer resistant.

    Average seed life: 3 years.
