1927 Henry Fields Seed Catalog says about Golden Acre Cabbage...
"It is claimed to be the earliest round headed cabbage and that it matures before Early Jersey Wakefield cabbage. The heads are firm with few outer leaves and average about four pounds."
1929 Steele Briggs Seed Catalog says about Golden Acre Cabbage Seed...
"Golden Acre: This variety resembles Copenhagen Market in type; but the heads though not quite so large are more uniformly round than Copenhagen. It is six days earlier than Copenhagen Market and on account of the smaller head may be planted closer than any other variety with a head of similar size. Its remarkable fine quality and tenderness will be greatly appreciated. There is an entire absence of coarse veins and leaves and it has the quality of hardening the head before it has attained its mature size. A good variety for market purposes."
1932 Burpee Seed Catalog says about Golden Acre Cabbage Seeds...
"This is a very superior stock of a popular extra early, round-headed variety of the Copenhagen Market type. Matures even earlier than Early Jersey Wakefield. Produces a uniform, tightly fold, round, well-balanced head of superb quality. Unsurpassed cabbage for the home or market garden."
The seeds are really great. Every single one came up and germinated fast. I planted straight into the prepared soil in my garden bed and was impressed how many came up. Ordered from different companies in the past and not all came up. With Sustainable, I planted few seeds in one hole and oh my, they got crowded, needed transplantation. Thank you!
I planted the golden acre cabbage in the Spring, and I am still harvesting the leaves (right into the Fall). Leaves are w very crisp and tender. Excellent choice. Thank you!
Seeds arrived quickly and are already growing in my garden. I also really love the organic fava beans that I ordered and have been getting a wonderful crop from those!
