These are the varieties of cabbage plants that we expect to offer in 2004.

Brunswick
A large drumhead cabbage, very cold hardy.
A fall/winter type cabbage, stores very well. Introduced in 1924, it is an excellent market variety that is becoming rare.

Charleston Wakefield
Larger than Early Jersey Wakefield, (4-6 lbs) and only a little later, this fine variety was developed by Peter Henderson & Co. in 1892. It is a good variety for the South.

Cour di Bue
Tender 3 to 4 lb., pointed oxheart-type heads, very good for home use or specialty markets. Old European heirloom. This type of cabbage was very popular 150 years ago. Fairly early and of superb quality.

Early Jersey Wakefield
Introduced in the 1840’s, with tasty 2-lb. sweet and flavorful conical heads. This very early variety was sold commercially by Peter Henderson in the late 1860’s.

Glory of Enkhuizen
Introduced in 1899 by Sluis & Groot, in Enkhuizen, Holland. Has medium-large, hard round heads. An early, excellent-keeping variety that is a good producer.

Large Drumhead Savoy
100 days. Flattened 5-lb., savoyed heads of fine flavor. A popular old French variety that predates 1885. At that time “mountains” of this cabbage were sent to the Central Market in Paris. A good storage variety.
Mammoth Red Rock
A large heirloom cabbage from 1889 with deep red heads that have good flavor and are very colorful.
 
Nero di Toscana - or Black Palm Tree
This loose-leafed cabbage dates back at least to the early 1800’s.  It has beautiful, deep “black” green leaves that can be 24" long. They are heavily savoyed. This Italian heirloom is popular in Tuscany and central Italy for making fabulous soups and stews. One of the most beautiful and flavorful types you can grow.
 
VARIETIES WE HOPE TO HAVE AVAILABLE SOON:
 
Copenhagen Market
An early type cabbage easily grown. Heads are round, medium in size and solid, weighing about 3 pounds and being 6-7 inches across. Best when used fresh.

Very early, small, round, medium green heads are ideal for home gardens. Ready in about 60 days from setting plants in the garden.
 
Early Golden Acre
A compact, small leafed variety of excellent quality. Head hardens early.
