Cabbage Savoy Aubervilliers HEIRLOOM Seeds

Brassica oleracea capitata sabauda

Item #0275

75 days from transplanting. You may find regular cabbage boring after trying Aubervilliers! Its crinkled leaves are never bitter, and it is delightful sliced into ribbons and eaten fresh, or cut into wedges and steamed or braised. This heirloom variety was grown at least as far back as the early 1900s on the Plain of Aubervilliers, France. Aubervilliers is a bolt resistant and frost tolerant crop for fall or early winter harvest.

This packet sows twenty-four 10-foot rows.

Days to Emerge:
6-8 days

Seed Depth:

Seed Spacing:
A group of 3 seeds every 20"

Row Spacing:

When 3" tall, thin to 1 every 20"

When to sow outside:
Cabbage "heads up" in cool weather. Plan your sowing on your best weather for harvesting, then using the days to maturity, count back to the ideal sowing date. Sow when soil is at least 55°F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before transplanting. Ideal soil temperature for germination is 75°-85°F. Sow in paper or pulp pots that go directly in the ground for minimal transplant shock.

Harvesting: Harvest heads as soon as they are well developed, firm, and solid when squeezed. Cut off heads at base with a sharp knife. Discard outermost leaves. Cabbages left in the ground beyond maturity are more subject to disease and splitting.
