SUMMER HARVEST. Charmant cabbage seeds offer excellent eating quality with a sweet flavour. The dense, smooth heads are medium-green with a creamy, yellow-white interior and weigh 1.5-3kg (3-6lb). Plants stand for weeks without splitting so there is no rush to harvest. This is convenient for the market grower as well as the home gardener. Transplant or thin a bit closer together in the row, and the heads will be smaller. For the largest heads, give each plant ample space and rich, fertile soil. The flavour of this variety is exceptional, and will enhance any meal.

Cabbage is another member of the Brassica family that is full of nutrients, including vitamins A, B1, B2, and C, as well as various antioxidants. The American Cancer Society strongly urges an increased intake of cabbage and other Brassicas in the diets of North Americans. Eating lots of cabbage may also protect the eyes from macular degeneration. To preserve its vitamins and mineral content, do not overcook cabbage. Store cut cabbage in the refrigerator in a plastic bag with holes in it and use as soon as possible. Cabbages are also highly ornamental in the garden -choose varieties for colour, deep-red, blue-green, dark-green or leaf texture, savoyed (crinkled), or flat leaf.
