Originally introduced by Hjalmar Hartman & Company of Denmark in 1909. These tender, crisp, solid 6-8″ heads can yield 4 + lbs. Tight, compact, rarely splitting early plants have set the standard for all other cabbages since. Very popular for making sauerkraut and stores exceptionally well.
Sow seed 1/4″ deep, indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. Transplant or sow direct 3-4 weeks before last frost 2-3′ apart. Do not plant cabbages in the same area year to year, always rotate crops. Plants will benefit from compost and or bone meal/blood meal in soil bed.
