Charleston Wakefield Cabbage
Brassica oleracea (Capitata) 'Charleston Wakefield'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring/Late Summer/Early Fall Ease of Germination: Easy
Introduced in the 1880s, this cabbage quickly became an American favourite because of its earliness, compact growth and large heads (3-4 lbs) that store well. It was developed from the popular English variety, Jersey Wakefield; but how and where that happened was controversial. One seed company claimed it acquired the variety in South Carolina while another claimed it came from a farm in Long Island. Whatever its true origin, its sweet flavour is excellent for fresh salads, sauerkraut, and cooking. Keeps well. 75-85 days.
