Cabbage, Winter – January King (Organic)


A medium-sized, regal-looking, dense and flavourful cabbage that can be enjoyed well into the winter months. We love winter cabbages as they can be stored in the ground until they are needed. January King is the hardiest of the Savoy types of cabbage, it can withstand low temperatures and severe frosts and be harvested throughout winter. The leaves are blue green with purple edges and have a crunchy, sweet texture. Quick to cook, it’s a great accompaniment to a Sunday roast.
