WINTER HARVEST. This is a very hardy, semi-savoyed, medium-green cabbage that averages 1-1.3kg (2-3lb). When Embassy cabbage seeds are sown in June to July, they can be harvested from October right through to April and can take short periods of temperatures as low as -12°C (10°F). Embassy has an appealing round shape and good colour that makes it a smart choice for market growers and home gardeners alike. Why not harvest fresh, organically grown vegetables in the dead of winter? Embassy can take the worst of coastal winters, providing fresh produce when you need it.
Matures in 5 months. (Hybrid seeds)
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.
