Australia's finest range of heirloom seeds since 1986


Italian Cabbage

(Brassica napa)

Very old large turnip swede with 2000 years of written history. It is buttery and tender and never woody no matter how big it gets, even people who are apprehensive about turnips and swedes love this one and it can be eaten raw. The root has been described as less attractive. Grows well all year round.
