Cabbage: Danish Ballhead
(Brassica oleracea var. capitata)
Cabbage is a hardy, leafy cruciferous vegetable that forms a compact, round head. It is native to southern Europe but can be grown in tropical or semi-tropical areas in cooler highlands where the winters are mild and there is a good supply of moisture. Some varieties in stock at ECHO are fairly tolerant of heat and humidity. Cabbage is a valuable garden and commercial crop as it is easy to grow, transport and store.
An open-pollinated cabbage that produces solid, heavy round heads up to 15-30cm in diameter. Heads are light green and weigh up to 4.5 kg.
