General information:


Brassica oleracea var.botrytis

Originating from southern Italy, Mark Twain called it cabbage with a college degree. Likes well drained soil with near neutral pH and sunny spot. Keep well watered. Will cross-pollinate with other Brassicas. Mature plants tolerate frost and need the coolest part of the year to develop heads. When heads appear tie leaves over head to prevent discolouration and maintain quality. Sow late summer, autumn.

240-420 seeds per gram
