GOLDEN ACRE Cabbage (OP) 62 days
Organically grown. A popular variety since the 1920’s, Golden Acre produces early, bearing 3 to 4 pound, perfectly round light green heads with creamy yellow centers. The small-veined leaves are tender, sweet and tightly packed. A great green cabbage for the home garden, because it can be planted closer together, producing well when spaced just 2 feet apart.
RED EXPRESS Cabbage (OP) 60 days
Organically grown. This compact, uniform, colorful cabbage produces bright reddish purple, 2-4 pound heads that are great for the small garden, and mature in a much shorter time than most cabbages. Ideal for cole slaw and sauerkraut, its flavor is as outstanding as its color.
