WINTER HARVEST. Danish Ballhead cabbage seeds produce heirloom cabbages that are mild and tender. This is a great, general-purpose cabbage that is good for sauerkraut, coleslaw, or general cooking. Big 8-25cm (7-10"), light-green, well-protected heads stand happily in the garden well into the winter. It happens that Denmark has the ideal geography for producing cabbage seeds. The wind and humidity and mild temperatures provide the perfect conditions for cabbage breeders. This is why so many cabbages refer to Denmark or Copenhagen in their names. Danish Ballhead was first introduced in 1887, and has remained a favourite ever since.

How To Grow

Cabbage is another member of the Brassica family that is full of nutrients, including vitamins A, B1, B2, and C, as well as various antioxidants. The American Cancer Society strongly urges an increased intake of cabbage and other Brassicas in the diets of North Americans. Eating lots of cabbage may also protect the eyes from macular degeneration. To preserve its vitamins and mineral content, do not overcook cabbage. Store cut cabbage in the refrigerator in a plastic bag with holes in it and use as soon as possible. Cabbages are also highly ornamental in the garden -choose varieties for colour, deep-red, blue-green, dark-green or leaf texture, savoyed (crinkled), or flat leaf.
