A quick growing, small to medium-sized cabbage. Eye-catching dark purple-red, tightly packed heads mature to approximately 12 cm (5″) in diameter with an average weight of 1-1.8 kg (2-4 lb). An excellent choice for smaller gardens.
How to Grow
Sow seed indoors in a soil-less mix 5 weeks before last frost date. Sow seed 6 mm (1/4″) deep and keep at 20 C (70 F) for the 7-10 day germination period. Grow on under lights at a slightly cooler temperature then harden off and plant outside in late May. Space plants 45 cm (18″) apart in rows with the rows 75 cm (30″) apart. Keep plants evenly watered through the growing season.
