Organic Mermaid’s Tale Cabbage v.I

65 - 80 days to harvest Brassica oleracea

Delectable diversity: Each head of Mermaid’s Tale, like each of us, is a unique expression of deliciously never-before-seen cabbage! Savor a vivid spectrum of light lime to emerald heads, each leaf veined lilac-lavender to rich burgundy, each one a kaleidoscope of color. “This is simply the most magical cabbage I’ve ever seen,” said Angela. Diversity unfolds as their conical shape may be sharp or subtle with mild, bright flavor and crisp-tender texture. A cross between Kalibos and an early green cone-headed cabbage, Mermaid’s Tale matures quickly though not all at once, ideal for moving beyond the industrial plant expectations of modernity. Mermaid’s Tale v.1 is the third generation of the cross with many, many more to come. For the full story, hop on over to our blog, Cabbage Re-Imagined: Remembering Our Food, Re-Imagining Ourselves.

    Love these! Not as pretty as the picture but nice none the less. First time I’ve ever grown cabbage due to cabbage moth but row covers made the difference. Heads aren’t huge, guessing 2 lbs or so but dense and no cracks even with the roller coaster wheaten we had this spring. Will definitely grow again next year.
