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.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAfter between 90 and 110 days, the heads are ready for harvest.
