General Information

Copenhagen Market
100 days to maturity— One of the largest early maturing roundhead varieties. The solid, round heads are six to eight inches in diameter and average three to four pounds in weight. Keeps well.

Developed by Hjalmar Hartmann & Co. of Copenhagen, Denmark and first introduced in 1909. The exact parentage is not known but is believed to be the old German variety, 'Ditmarscher'. W. Atlee Burpee introduced 'Copenhagen Market' into the United States in 1911.

These compact heads are sweet for fabulous coleslaw, salad, or sauerkraut. Copenhagen Market became the standard of excellence for many store-bought varieties that were developed after it! Adaptable to a range of climates. Resists splitting and stores well.

When to plant outside: Early spring, 3 to 4 weeks before average last frost - or in late summer, 10-12 weeks before average first frost. Late summer is best where summers are hot. In zone 8 or warmer, sow early fall for winter harvest.

When to start inside: 4-6 weeks before transplanting outside

Special Germination Instructions: Easy to start from seed. Thin seedlings by pinching off plant at soil surface, thus decreasing damage to other seedlings. Rotate crops, so you don’t grow any member of the mustard family (such as bok choy, broccoli, cabbage, kale, etc.) in the same place more than once every 3 years.
