(B. oleracea) This is our selection of this classic semi-savoyed winter cabbage with a cultivation history dating back to the late 19th century in England. Planted in late summer these beautiful vigorous plants produce medium-sized, slightly flattened, green-tinged-purple heads ready to harvest in Jan-Feb. There is nothing like heading out to the garden after a hard freeze in January and harvesting some fresh vegetables. Practically indestructible (our patch, fully headed and uncovered, was completely un-fazed by temps down to 5F a few winters back) they have a delightfully strong cabbage flavor. While the industry has shifted to hybrids in the winter savoy category, we are committed to maintaining and continuing to improve what we consider to be the best in class.
