The "Moretta" cabbage is a traditional winter harvested savoy cabbage from the village of Veronella which lies between Verona and Padua in northern Italy. Like many regional specialties with roots in place in Italy and elsewhere, this variety is woven into the agricultural, cullinary, and cultural fabric of the area, and is celebrated with a "Sagra" or harvest festival in the second half of November each year. Green savoyed leaves blush deep purple on the exterior as the weather cools while the interior remains blanched pale yellow. Excellent and cold hardy for winter harvest from June sowing.
Packet: 100 seeds
*This seed has tested negative for both Black Leg (Phoma lingam) and Black Rot (Xanthomonus campestris) as required by the WA Dept of Ag crucifer seed quarantine.
