Description

Organic Red Cabbage: Langedijker Bewaar 2. Long Keeper 2. Brassica oleracea var. rubra.

Red Cabbage Langedijker Bewaar 2, translates as “Long Keeper”, It is a lovely medium-large sized red cabbage. Harvest in September to November, it stores well in a frost free place.

How to grow:
Sow in March undercover in modules, transplant out when large enough, about 10cms tall and up to 45cms apart. Or start outside in a well prepared seed bed April to June. Mulch with well rotted farmyard manure or compost, it likes fertile loamy soil. Harvest from August up until before first frosts.

Problem solving:
Keep slugs and pigeons off them especially when small. A fake bird of prey, especially the kite type can work well for pigeons. The cabbage butterflies will love them come July/August, so covering with enviromesh, or something like it will save you picking off many little caterpillars.

Favourite ways to eat them:
Eat fresh, steam or boil until tender, don’t overcook. Really tasty as part of a stir fry cabbages take on an almost nutty flavour. There’s a receipe for red cabbage, beetroot and red onion, sauteed with honey, basamic vinegar and stock.

Cultural history:
Cabbage was most likely domesticated in Europe about 3,000 years ago from its crop wild relatives Brassica oleraceae.

Avg contents: 100 seeds.
