Cabbage – Langedijk Red (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 be used as a litmus test for acidity turning blue in more alkaline conditions.
