Heirloom Vegetable. First introduced to gardeners sometime around 1850, this beautiful looking, late maturing cabbage produces a large head that tends to be somewhat flatter than other varieties. The head can grow up to 30 cm (12″) across and weigh in at a stunning 5.4 kg (12 lbs)! This is an excellent cabbage for winter storage.
