15-pound heads

Days to Maturity: 72

Tropic Giant Hybrid lives up to its name with the absolute biggest heads of cabbage you will probably ever see, let alone grow This is the one that wins prizes at state fairs and brings cries of astonishment from gardening friends. Fully one foot across and weighing around 15 pounds, these whopping heads are flattish and round, with pale green leaves well packed. Be sure to leave extra growing space between these plants, and fertilize well—they'll need it. Unbelievable harvests for cabbage lovers.

Cabbage is a cool-season crop, sown in early spring for early-summer harvest or in mid- to late summer for fall harvest. Where winters are mild, it can be sown nearly year-round, except during the hot summer months. Start indoors or direct sow, spacing plants 2 to 2 1/2 feet apart. Before planting, prepare the soil well with fertilizer, and add a dose of ammonium nitrate about a month into the growth season. Harvest the heads when they are firm and brightly colored. Plants may form smaller side-heads after the main head is harvested.

Drought

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I planted this last Fall. The drought in CA caused me to stop watering. We had a few inches of rain all Winter. Well, would you believe, I went out to weed the bed and these plants were still alive in May! They were forming heads. Small, but considering the lack of water, I'm impressed. I think part of it is that I innoculated that soil with Plant Success microbes several years back. I've found that brassicas need much less water when they have the microbes. But, this plant was twice the size of the red cabbages that also survived. I am going to try this one again, and make sure it gets watered. I'll count on it for coleslaw next Summer.

Huge Cabbage

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

These were prolific plants. I harvested plenty of heads that were anywhere from 14 pounds to 24 pounds. They even did well when the weather got hot. These don't split either.
