WINTER HARVEST. CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Deadon organic cabbage seeds produce heads that have truly savoyed, purple leaves over a tightly packed, lime green center. The 15-25cm (6-10”), slightly flattened heads are very cold hardy, and only get sweeter after hard frosts. The colour also improves in cold weather. Its firm texture is matched by delicate flavour, making Deadon one of our trial favourites.

Provide protection from late summer cabbage moths by growing under lightweight row cover. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

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.
