Pkt (≈ 50 seeds)

This cool-weather relative to cabbage is easy to grow, producing a large head. The vitamin-rich head is actually a cluster of tiny flower buds. After the head is harvested, it "sprouts" numerous smaller heads. Sow in early spring or fall, or plant transplants. Delicious fresh, frozen, raw or steamed!

  • Planting Depth: 1/4" (6mm)
  • Seed Spacing: 1" (2.5cm)
  • Spacing Between Rows: 18-24" (40-60cm)
  • Days to Germination: 7-14
  • Spacing After Thinning: 12-18" (30-45cm)
  • Days to Maturity: 88

When and Where to Plant: Sow in a sunny location in early spring or late summer. For an earlier start in spring, start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before setting out.

Care: Plants prefer a firm soil and just enough water to prevent wilting.

Harvest: Cut just before buds begin to open, 6" (15cm) beneath the cluster of buds.

Your Health: A good source of calcium, phosphorus, vitamins A, B & C, and fiber.
