All Seasons Cabbage Seeds (87 days)

(Was also known as "The Vandergaw" and "Novelty")

All Seasons was first listed by J.J.H. Gregory & Son, of Marblehead, Mass in 1886.  A few years later it makes an appearance in Burpee's 1890 Farm Annual as "Novelty" under the name "The Vandergaw". 

A good mid-season cabbage for those regions with a moderate to warm summer.

 All seasons cabbage is heat resistant and resistant to yellows. 

Was once widely planted in South Texas as an early type.

Can also be used in the Northern states for a late variety.

Plants are 12-14" high and 30-36" wide. 

All Seasons cabbage produces fine heads that are about 10-11" across and average about  11-14#s

Widely used for sauerkraut, but excellent in other applications as well.

 1890 Burpee Seed Catalog says about All Seasons Cabbage....

"As now improved this is a valuable market gardeners cabbage for a succession.  The heads are very hard and solid, round, flattened on the top, of the very best quality, and ready to market very nearly as early as Early Summer Cabbage, while the heads are much larger in size.  It is a very sure-heading varieties, noted for its ability to stand the hot summer sun and dry weather.  It is called "All Seasons" because it is as good for Autumn or winter as it is for early market."

Planting Tips:

Start spring seedlings 4-5 weeks before transplanting.  Start fall transplants 2-3 months before first frost.  Transplant out to the garden when 3” tall at least 90 days before your first frost in midsummer.  When transplanting, enrich soil with a little blood and bone meal.  Needs cool temperatures to head properly – will bolt in heat.  Keeping soil evenly moist is a must for a healthy crop.

Set out your spring cabbage transplants early enough so that they can mature before the heat of summer, about 5 weeks before the last frost. For a longer cabbage harvest, plant 2 or 3 varieties with different maturities.

Soil:  Surprisingly, heirloom organic cabbage will do well on heavy clay soil, although it prefers a rich heavy loam.  It delights in copious amounts of composted manure mixed into the soil bed.  Remember not to plant cabbage seed in the same place year to year.  The soil pH should be between 6.0 and 7.5 for optimum growth and to discourage clubroot disease.

Heirloom seeds are hardy, but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.
