SECTION: Vegetable Seeds, Cabbage, Winter, Brassica oleracea var. capitata
Savoy cabbages are the most cold-hardy of all, and many consider their very thin, ruffled and blistered leaves to be more delicate in flavor than ordinary cabbage. Large, medium green heads average 4-6 lbs, and are perfect for stuffing, braising and soups as well as winter salad and slaw. Takes lots of frost and snow; not as tolerant of extreme wet as the three above varieties.Protect from slugs in wet weather.
One packet will plant 100 sq ft when using 18" spacing in the bed.
