EXCLUSIVE – A traditional European specialty, these handsome cabbages have a solid, rounded, tightly wrapped base of leaves that taper to a point. Flavor is consistently mild and remarkably sweet. Enjoy Conehead’s great fresh flavor and crunchy texture sliced up in salads, shredded for coleslaw, or quickly sauté with a little cumin or caraway seeds, or add to tasty stirfries. Heads grow quickly and are uniform and heavy for their size with strong wrapper leaves and great weather tolerance.
Seed Count: 120-124 / Weight: 0.48 gms / F-1 Hybrid

TO START INDOORS

Start seeds 4 to 5 weeks before last spring frost. Sow 1 inch apart in seed starting mix, cover 1/2 inch deep and keep evenly moist. Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant out. When several inches tall, transplant seedlings 10 inches apart into rich soil in full sun, after gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions.

TO START DIRECTLY OUTDOORS

When all danger of frost is over, plant in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Sow groups of 2 to 3 seeds 10 inches apart in rows spaced 1 foot apart. When seedlings are several inches tall, thin to 1 strong plant every 10 inches. Mild Winter Areas: Sow again midsummer for a fall crop.

GROWING NOTES

Cabbage needs full sun and rich, well-drained soil to produce firm, sweet heads. To avoid stunting growth, don’t let seedlings get crowded before thinning or transplanting. Keep weeded and evenly watered. Feed monthly with fish emulsion or any high nitrogen fertilizer. Use non-toxic B.T. (Bacillus thuringiensis) for caterpillar pests. Floating row covers provide a good barrier method to exclude pests. Remove covers when heads begin to form.
