90 days to harvest Brassica oleracea

HEIRLOOM Kalibos, simply, is the most stunning cabbage we have ever seen. Her heads are deep purple and conical with wide, round hips. Organic Kalibos Red Cabbage is exceptionally sweet, tender and long storing, as well. We first tasted Kalibos grown by Blue Heron Farm (Lodi, New York) in March 2013 and were swept off our feet never having tasted such sweet, fresh cabbage so late in the season. It has been a privilege to collaborate with Blue Heron to select Kalibos for early maturity, excellent head shape, density and flavor and excellent storability, as well. Though longer to mature than many cabbages, trust us friends: Kalibos is more than worth the wait. We enjoy Kalibos as slaw, braised, roasted, turned into kraut and in borcht and are so grateful to be able to share this seed with you. Kalibos is best as a fall cabbage; sow in early or mid-July for best results. Lou at Blue Heron seeds them in early July and transplants them in early August at two-foot spacing; he waits until October and November to harvest heads of optimal size and sweetness.
