  • Cabbage - Langedijk Red Late

    Cabbage – Langedijk red late (Organic)

    £2.80

    Cabbage – Langedijk red late (Organic)

    Forms dense heads of a good size which stand well in the field and also do well in storage. This improved variety is particularly suited for storage and has good taste. It also makes a very fine sauerkraut, turning bright pink during the fermentation, with the addition of salt. Red cabbage can in fact be used as a litmus test for acidity (it will turn blue in less acidic conditions).

    Cabbage – Rodynda (Organic)

    Red autumn and winter cabbage with a dense head and medium-good storage qualities. Rodynda is a variety bred specifically for organic conditions. It is vigourous and short-stemmed and forms dense, elliptical heads. It has strong outer leaves and solid root growth. The particularly sweet and aromatic flavour makes it perfect for a coleslaw and it performs brilliantly in a classic braised red cabbage dish cooked with apples and onions.

  • Cabbage - Violaceo di Verona

    Cabbage, Winter – Violaceo di Verona (Organic)

    £2.95

    Cabbage, Winter – Violaceo di Verona (Organic)

    A winter Savoy cabbage with dark green and violet leaves. We were really pleased with Violaceo di Verona in our cabbage trials in 2018, in terms of vigour, pest resistance and looks.

    This variety grows medium sized heads that can be harvested from July until mid-winter with successional sowings.

    Another Italian heirloom of the region of Verona that has been preserved for its beautiful looks and its fabulous flavour. It is frost hardy and long standing. As the cold moves in the contrast of colours will get more bright.
