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 variety, 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."
