My Grandpa's favorite cabbage
This was my grandpa's favorite cabbage and he planted it every year while he was able to plant a garden. (Now my dad plants if for him) the leaves are large which is perfect for cabbage rolls. it does better in heat then most cabbages do. It does take up a lot of space which is needed to support the size of the head that forms. Grows very well in southern Indiana and is very easy to start from seed.
Our family loved this cabbage! We make traditional dishes for Christmas with cabbage leaves and sauerkraut. We grew this variety for those dishes this year and they were excellent. Good, heavy heads with great flavor. They also kept very well.
