Brassica oleracea

Verona Purple Savoy Cabbage is an old variety originating from Italy that has mild sweet flavour, and stores well.  The compact heads reach up to 4kg, with outer green leaves and purple inner leaves.  Also known as Violaceo di Verona.  

Cabbage is mainly an annual cool season crop, it is frost hardy. Sow late summer to late autumn depending on area.  

Sow seed approx. 5mm deep, Germination approx. 7 - 12 days. Cabbage likes a rich, well-drained soil, prepared with well-rotted compost or animal manure through the bed. Keep the soil moist.

Begin harvest as soon as heads feel solid (approx. 80 - 90 days). Covering young seedlings with a net will protect them from White Cabbage butterflies.
