Description

Brassica oleracea

Also known as Dalmation Cabbage. Particularly nutritious open-leaved cabbage for picking through winter and spring. Used by the Dalmations for stuffing with mince and beans then baking.  Similar to kale in terms of origin and nutrition, it is known as a super food for its high vitamin and mineral content and potential anti-cancer properties. Useful for large families as it provides an ongoing large harvest, but also good for small households as it can be picked leaf by leaf as required.  Easy to grow and frost hardy, we’ve had plants that we’ve harvested from for over a year.  Leaves make great chook fodder.  Space plants 30cm apart.  9 cm pot. Certified organic plant. Available autumn to spring.
