“Through rigorous selection we sow cabbage seeds with particular properties, and I analyze the results the following year. I strive to choose only the highest quality varieties and hybrids for specific climate zones, and for that I rely on quite a rich collection of various genotypes. In breeding I pay special attention to flavor, resistance to cracking, and disease tolerance.”
The white, round head with crisp, juicy, sweet, and moderately compact leaves reaches 1.5 kg within 60 days of transplanting. Resistant to cracking, you can harvest it in the next 20 days when its mass comes to 2 kg. Use 70 x 40 cm spacing as a first crop on the open field, provide good care and protection, and it will yield around 70 t/ha after 80 days. Or plant it as a second crop and expect 60 t/ha after 60 days. It’s ideal for summer salads, as well as for sauerkraut. Enjoy the attractive curl of its thin-veined leaves.
If you have a small garden or you simply want to save space, plant this small-leafed white cabbage densely, with 40 x 40 cm spacing. 85 days from transplanting, round, very hard and compact, crack-resistant, and Xanthomonas campestris- and Fusarium wilt-tolerant heads, weighing around 1 kg, will ripen. Those traits will allow them to rest in the field fresh and without any damage for a long time. Provide them to urban vegetable markets and shops, where there’s a demand for “one cabbage for one lunch.”
This super early cabbage arrives 58 days after transplanting in the form of a white, 1-1.5 kg head. Being compact, round, and hard, you can plant 6-8 per m². At such dense spacing, small leaves grow at a 45° angle and enable high early yield. Grow it on the open field, or in the greenhouse if the market demands fresh early cabbage. With its small core, both you and your customers at the vegetable market will be very satisfied.
Transplant this cabbage relatively densely, 4-5 plants per m², and harvest heads weighing 2 kg in 70 days, and 3 kg in 90 days. The hard heads, also called ‘Pigeon’ or ‘Colorful One’ due to their green-pink color, can sit on the field for a long time without cracking. After the harvest, consume them fresh, ferment, or keep in cold storage until mid-winter. With their pretty colors, chefs artfully arrange and present their taste visually, and sauerkraut juice drinkers have
a pink option for both stomach and head.
65-80 days after transplanting, harvest this medium-early hybrid. White, round heads, highly compact and hard, weighing 2.5-3 kg, have juicy, crisp, and sweet leaves of veiny gray-green. Consume fresh or store for 2-3 months after harvest. Ideal shape, mass distribution, color, and compactness place this hybrid at the very top among world cabbage offerings, and you among real professionals who know exactly what they want.
RED KING F1
Red, delicious, and decorative, this medium-late hybrid weighing 2 – 3 kg is very resistant to cracking and cold, so let it sit on the field during the winter and harvest several times. Starting 100 – 140 days after transplanting with 60 x 40 cm spacing, harvesting these wonderfully colorful and highly disease-tolerant heads will be a real pleasure.
