Frigga Savoy Cabbage Seed
Frigga Cabbage (86 days) Open-pollinated. Usually grows compact 3 lb round 6" balls, though under wide spacing and high fertility can achieve double that size. As handsome a plant as I ever hope to see with highly savoyed dark green wrapper leaves curling tightly around the core. Real cabbage flavor with some sweetness, texture on the dry side. Holds in the field for a month after maturity. For savoy connoisseurs.
About 100+ per pack. 88% germination.
Cabbage Culture: Blue-purple foods such as red cabbage and purple cauliflower contain anthocyanins and phenolics, which benefit the urinary tract, memory and immune system.Exposure to hoarfrost is good for cabbages. They double their sugar content after one month of cold. Red cabbage seedlings are often used for microgreens.
Minimum germination soil temperature 40°, optimal range 55 to 95°, optimal temperature 77°. Emergence takes 5 days at 77°.
Days to maturity are from direct seeding. Subtract 20 days from date of transplanting.
