Description:
Reaching maturity in about 60-65 days, Golden Acre cabbages are often among the first cabbages to be harvested from the garden in the spring. At peak harvest time, early Golden Acre cabbage plants produce heads that range from 3-5 lbs. These smooth cabbage heads are exceptionally firm, and a good choice for growth in smaller garden spaces. The crisp, crunchy texture of Golden Acre cabbage variety makes it a fantastic choice for use in slaw and stir fry recipes. Early Golden Acre cabbages will also require rich soil. A combination of high quality finished compost and nitrogen rich soil amendments are usually recommended for those wishing to form large cabbage heads.

Growing Instructions (USDA Zones 3-12):
To start the cabbage seeds, sow into seed starting trays in early spring or late summer depending upon the preferred harvest window. Spring cabbages will require enough time to mature before the heat of summer has arrived. Later plantings of cabbage may be made for harvest in the fall garden.

Sow 2 seeds per cell 1/4″ deep. Seedlings should be ready to transplant in 4-6 weeks. If possible keep soil temperature over 75°F until germination, then reduce air temperature to about 60°F. Transplant outdoors, 12-18″ apart in rows 18-36″ apart. Cabbage prefers cooler growing temperatures, between 55-75°F, but will produce decent crops under warmer, summer conditions. Use midseason and storage varieties for Fall crop. Start seedlings late spring and transplant to the garden in early summer. To ensure mature heads, seed the crop early in areas where heavy freezes occur early in fall. Successful cabbage crops can be grown where winters are mild. Transplants can be set out from September to February in these regions. Sow 3-4 seeds 12″ apart, 1/2″ deep, rows 24-36″ apart, thinning to one plant in each group.
