Cabbage, Winter : Deadon F1
Brassica oleracea var. capitata
Approx. 250-350 seeds per gram
Cabbage has been cultivated for hundreds of years. The headed cabbage with a dense, closely packed heart comes in many different varieties.
They can be sown at three distinct times of the year so we sub-divide them into Spring, Summer/Autumn, and Autumn/Winter varieties. Combined with their long standing and hardiness we crop cabbage in the garden almost all year round. Cabbages are either round or pointed and come in two colours: green or red.
There is also some variation in leaf texture. Most are smooth but the Savoy types have a blistered texture.
Deadon F1 is a hybrid January King type with a characteristic purple tinge to its outer leaves. It has a rich and peppery, yet sweet, taste. The heads are flat-round and very solid and they will normally stand until late December.How to grow:
