Perfection Drumhead Savoy Cabbage Seed  (92 days)

Perfection is a large drumhead-type cabbage that has finely-wrinkled, savoyed leaves that are mild and sweet in flavor.  Perfection Savoy lacks the sulfur like smell when cooking that other cabbages can sometimes have.  Fantastic quality and flavor.  

Perfection Savoy is a key ingredient in the wonderful Italian ministrone soup, but still very tender for fresh eating.  Perfection Savoy cabbage is very high in fiber, vitamins and minerals, and like other cruciferous vegetables has been proven to have cancer fighting properties.

1932 Burpee's Seed Catalog says about perfection savoy cabbage...
The best Savoy Cabbage in existence.  Considered more tasty than ordinary cabbage.  The heavy heads grow to large size and are as round as a ball.  The deep green, crinkled outer leaves enclose a solid, tender, light green heart of remarkably sweet flavor.  Easily stored for winter use.  We have a splendid strain of this desirable variety."

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.
