Cabbage (Brassica oleracea or variants) is a leafy green biennial plant, grown as an annual vegetable crop for its dense-leaved heads. Closely related to other cole crops, such as broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts, it descends from B. oleracea var. oleracea, a wild field cabbage.

Cabbage heads generally range from 1 to 8 pounds (0.5 to 4 kg), and can be green, purple and white. Smooth-leafed firm-headed greencabbages are the most common, with smooth-leafed red and crinkle-leafed savoy cabbages of both colors seen more rarely.This cool-season crop grows best when daytime temperatures are in the 60s F. Direct-seed or transplant spring crops for fresh use in summer.Plant fall crops for winter storage or sauerkraut.Lifecycle: annualEase-of-care: moderately difficult, Requires good soil, timely planting and protection from pests.

    Water Cabbage care

    The planting season for cabbage is quite long. Early cabbage should be transplanted as soon as possible so that it can mature before summertime heat. If you have been wondering when to plant cabbage plants, you should know that several varieties are available at different maturity times so you can have a harvest all summer long.

    When thinking about when to plant cabbage plants, you should remember that hardened plants can be very tolerant of frosts. Therefore, you can plant these early in the spring with other cool season vegetables. Late cabbage can be started during mid-summer, but remember that they won, t develop a head until fall.

    Sunlight Cabbage needs at least 6 hours of full sun each day; more is better.
    Watering Water regularly, applying 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week if it doesn t rain.
    Soil Requires well-drained soil, fertile soil high in organic matter, pH 6.0 to 7.5. Can tolerate slightly alkaline soil. This heavy feeder also needs plentiful, consistent moisture.
    Temperature Germination temperature: 45 F to 85 F - Will germinate at soil temperatures as low as 40 F.
    Fertilizer Fertilize plants again with a liquid fertilizer such as fish emulsion or 20-20-20 after they begin to develop new leaves and when they start forming heads.
    Harvest Season
  • Harvest when heads reach desired size and are firm. This will take around 70 days for most green cabbage varieties.
  • Most early varieties will produce 1- to 3-pound heads.
  • Cut each cabbage head at its base with a sharp knife. After harvesting, bring inside or put in shade immediately.
  • To get two crops from early cabbage plants, cut the cabbage head out of the plant, leaving the outer leaves and root in the garden.
  • The plant will send up new heads,pinch them off until only four or so smaller heads remain.
  • When these grow to tennis-ball size, they will be perfect for salad.
  • After harvesting, remove the entire stem and root system from the soil to prevent disease build up.
  • Only compost healthy plants; destroy those with maggot infestation.
  • Cabbage can be stored in the refrigerator for no more than two weeks, wrapped lightly in plastic. Make sure it is dry before storing.
