Cabbage Savoy Aubervilliers HEIRLOOM Seeds

Brassica oleracea capitata sabauda

Item #0275

120 days. You may find regular cabbage boring after trying Aubervilliers! Its crinkled leaves are never bitter, and it is delightful sliced into ribbons and eaten fresh, or cut into wedges and steamed or braised. This heirloom variety was grown at least as far back as the early 1900s on the Plain of Aubervilliers, France where mountains of cabbage were harvested for the Central Market of Paris. A bolt resistant and frost tolerant crop for fall or early winter harvest.

This packet sows twenty-four 10-foot rows.

Days to Emerge:
6-8 days

Seed Depth:

Seed Spacing:
A group of 3 seeds every 20"

Row Spacing:

When 3" tall, thin to 1 every 20"

When to sow outside: 12 to 14 weeks before average first fall frost.

When to start inside: 4 to 6 weeks before transplanting outdoors for fall crop. Start in pulp pots that go directly in the ground for minimal transplant shock. Gently remove bottom of pot before planting.

Harvesting: Harvest heads as soon as they are well developed, firm, and solid when squeezed. Cut off heads at base with a sharp knife. Discard outermost leaves. Cabbages left in the ground beyond maturity are more subject to disease and splitting.
