Product Information

Red cabbage has always been extremely popular in most parts of Europe but never enjoyed the following in United Kingdom. Grow it as you would summer cabbage, cutting in early autumn for cooking or in late autumn for winter storage. Red Cabbage Sommer is a late variety with spherical, compact dark red heads about 2 – 4 kg in weight. Suitable for immediate use, Sommer Red cabbage can also be processed and stores extremely well.  As with all cabbage Red cabbage Sommer needs well consolidated soil so leave several months between digging and planting. Add farmyard manure to the soil when digging but never apply fresh manure before planting. Birds can be a problem and young seedlings will need protection from sparrows. Mature cabbage may also need some protection from pigeons.
