Late Flat Dutch Cabbage Seeds
Brassica oleracea (90-104 days) Introduced here in the US around the 1860s.
Late Flat Dutch is big cabbage, it is a good keeper and the standard late season variety. Heads form up to 12 inches and weigh as on an average around 12 pounds, but can get as big as the 38lb monster you see in the pictures. This cabbage filled up a contractor size wheelbarrow and it wasn't the only one in the field that size! Highly recommended for the coastal foggy areas of the Pacific Northwest. The monster in the picture was grown 14 miles from the coast. Not well adapted to the South and heat. If you have cool nights this is the cabbage for you!
Late Flat Dutch has an excellent flavor. Keeps very well for processing. We make tons of sauerkraut out of it. Heck one head can easily fill 28 jars!
