90-110 days. Organic Red Acre Cabbage Seeds. Brassica oleracea var. capitata. Non-GMO. Heirloom. Nearly a century old and still one of the most reliable performers in the garden, Red Acre cabbage seeds mature into a dark red and purple, nearly black, tightly packed head. Organic Red Acre seeds grow medium-sized heads of about 3-5 lbs each and a neat 5-7" diameter. The firmer than usual heads allow for closer, tighter sowing out in the garden box. Excellent storage variety with resistance to Fusarium wilt. ~6,750 seeds per oz.
Organic red acre cabbage is a cool weather crop able to be planted multiple times throughout the season for successive year-round harvests. Cabbage seeds perform best when started indoors 6-8 weeks prior to final spring frost or 6-8 weeks before first autumn frost.
Plant 2-3 Organic Red Acre seeds 1/4" deep per cell or peat pot in Organically rich, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-7.0. Cabbage seeds germinate in 5-12 days, transplanting strongest starts every 18-24" in the garden once true leaves establish. Cabbage requires regular moisture during vegetative growth to keep heads from splitting before harvest. Plants are heavy feeders and thrive from rich garden composting and routine fertilizing.
Organic Red Acre Cabbage in the Vegetable Garden
Cabbage is often mistakenly thought to be one of the more intimidating, difficult vegetable crops to try as a home gardener because of its preference for colder, more northern gardens. Despite the slander, cabbage is a Brassica no more challenging to grow than kale, broccoli, or collards. Whether as a garden crop or flowering ornamental variety, cabbage is available anywhere from rich burgundy to a familiar pale green and easy enough to grow for anyone willing to try.
Harvesting Organic Red Acre Cabbage
Depending on the specific cultivar and when sown in the season, most varieties of cabbage are ready to harvest at about 100 days from sowing or when heads are firm with a diameter of about 5-7". Some varieties may overwinter, requiring more than 120 days for harvesting. Using a knife, cut heads at the base and remove yellow leaves from the cut head, keeping healthy loose green leaves attached which help protect cabbage heads during storage.
After between 90 and 110 days, the heads are ready for harvest. To harvest, remove the root with the head so that it doesn't rot or cause disease in the soil.
