70 Days to maturity. Brassica oleracea ’Brunswick’. Organic Brunswick Cabbage Seeds. Non-GMO, cool weather annual. Introduced in 1824 to the United States from Germany, this cabbage is excellent for making sauerkraut, a traditional German pickled condiment. Brunswick is a large drumhead-type cabbage. This cold hardy cabbage is ideal for fall/winter growing and stays good in storage for quite a while. ~6,800 seeds/oz.
These seeds can be sown multiple times throughout the year due to their short growing time. Typically spring and fall are the most successful times to plant. Whenever you sow, plan on using fertilizer or compost. Avoid problems by being attentive to the soil moisture level and always keeping it moist; mulch around the base of the plants once they have grown a bit to reduce rotting, avoid premature bolting, and improve soil moisture. Cabbages have shallow roots and require light but frequent irrigations.
If your cabbage seedlings start to look stringy, the soil may not be fertile or retain enough moisture. If your area experiences high winds, protect the cabbage plants by mounding up soil around the base of the plants to protect the roots. Avoid planting any variety of brassica in the same location more often than every 5 or 6 years. Frost or prolonged temperatures below 50°F may cause premature bolting.
Brunswick Cabbage in the Vegetable Garden
Brunswick cabbages can grow quite wide at full maturity and do their best when given space to expand. When they are young, you can plant quick-growing leafy greens like spinach or some lettuce around the base to use up the earth until the cabbage is large enough. These cabbages can be focal points in kitchen gardens because of their large, rosette formation.
Harvesting Brunswick Cabbage
Brunswick Cabbages are best harvested for consumption before they flower and when the head in the center of the rosette has reach the desired size. This can be as early as 65 days or as late as 80 days depending on your conditions and desires. When ready, slice off the entire head of cabbage at the base, close to the earth.
