Description:
Red Acre cabbage is simply the best early maturing red cabbage! Red Acre is a fantastic cabbage that produces reddish-purple heads. Each cabbage head grows to 7 inches in diameter and weighs about 3 pounds. Red Acre is resistant to cabbage yellowing and is great for home gardens that have little space. Red Acre cabbage stores better than just about any other early cabbage variety. Great raw or for coleslaw use.

Growing Instructions (USDA Zones 3-9):
Red Acre cabbage will need full or partial sun, the soil will need to remain moist and about 2 inches of water each week while growing. If sowing indoors and transplanting outside, it’s best to harden off the plants over the course of a week. Sow them half an inch deep, with 1.5 feet between the plants, in rows with 2 feet apart. The seedlings will do best in a composted soil. At around 100 days, the heads should be firm with a diameter of about 7” the Red Acre cabbage can be harvested. When doing this, you will need to also remove the entire stem and root, to prevent the buildup of disease.
