CABBAGE Golden Acre (Early)

This early round head cabbage is easily grown and versatile in use. Heads are about 6 to 7 inches in diameter on compact plants about a foot high. Its firm, medium green head is excellent cooked or raw in stews and salads. Approximately 65 days till maturity from transplant.

Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: Start indoors or in greenhouse in early spring or plant directly outdoors in mid spring. Cover seeds with 1/8 inch fine soil.

THINNING AND TRANSPLANTING: Transplant seedlings indoors after first pair of true leaves have developed. Space them 4 inches apart or pot them individually in 2 1/2 inch pots. Once plants are established, harden off and transplant outdoors after severe frost danger has passed.

SPACING: Space rows 2 to 3 feet apart depending on space available. Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart in the rows.

GERMINATION: Indoors in 70 degree temperatures, seeds take about 10 days to germinate.

Ed's Special Advice

Plant cabbage in a sunny location where no cabbage was grown the year before. Rich soil and regular watering are to their liking. Delicious and rich in vitamins and minerals.
