Keep Calm and Garden on!
70 days. Introduced in the 1840s, with tasty, 2 lb, sweet and flavorful, conical heads that resist splitting. This very early variety was sold commercially in the late 1860s. Its pyramidal shape with sparse outside foliage permits closer spacing: a great short-season variety and an excellent choice for fall gardens. We’ve grown this variety for years after being introduced to it by an older couple who lived next door and loved to share their gardening secrets with us. They’ve long since passed away, but I still remember her smiling face as she’d hand me one of these beautiful cabbages over the garden fence.
