General Information

Cabbage is a member of the brassica family which contains broccoli, brussel sprouts, and cauliflower. They enjoy cool weather and do not respond well to excessive heat. Cabbage is a biennial plant that will yield fruit for only one season.

A top-notch red variety used raw, cooked or in coleslaw. Heads are deep red, globe shaped, 6 to 7 inches in diameter. A colorful addition to a garden landscape. Red Acre stores better than most early cabbage. Approximately 77 days to maturity from transplant.

Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: Start indoors or in greenhouse in early spring. Cover seeds with 1 8 inch fine soil. THINNING AND TRANSPLANTING: Transplant seedlings indoors after first pair of true leaves have developed. Space them 4 inches apart or pot them individually in 2 1 2 inch pots. Once plants us established, harden off and transplant outdoors after severe frost danger has passed.

SPACING: Space rows 2 to 3 feet apart depending on space available. Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart in the rows.

GERMINATION: 7 to 10 days at 70 F indoors. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.


Plant outdoors in a sunny location in well-drained soil where no members of the cabbage family were grown the year before. Water regularly and fertilize periodically throughout the growing season. Easy to grow, colorful, flavorful and nutritious. Place wood shavings at base of pliant or cover crop row with cheesecloth or agricultural netting to protect from root maggots.
