  • Cabbage, Chieftain Savoy (Organic)

    Cabbage, Chieftain Savoy (Organic)

    $3.50$50.00
    Brassica oleracea. 90 days.

    Old standard OP Savoy cabbage that is now very hard to come by and is great for autumn rotations. More tender and sweet than many of the modern European Savoy hybrids, though not as winter hardy. Produces vibrant green heads that average 4 – 6 lbs. Our original seed was given to us by Tim Peters, formerly of Peters Seed and Research, who preserved this variety when the big companies dropped it. We are excited to grow it and keep it alive.

    As required by the Oregon Department of Agriculture & the Washington Crucifer Quarantine, all Brassica family seed lots have been tested & found negative for blackleg (Phoma lingam) by an approved, certified lab.


  • Cabbage, January King (Organic)

    Cabbage, January King (Organic)

    $3.50$50.00
    Brassica oleracea. 160-210 days.

    January King certainly reigns supreme amongst OP winter cabbages. Beautiful purple-ish plants form light green winter savoy type heads with purple outer leaves. When growing for our winter CSA, we relied on this variety for its firm, semi-flat, well-filled, 3-5 lb heads from January into March. We sourced several strains with a lot of variability between sources but found a clear winner in the West Coast Seeds selection which overwintered under row cover and a good covering of snow, and survived our 5 ̊F lows in December 2013. We also preferred its vigor, uniformity, shape and color over other strains. Plant out in early July for fantastic cabbage all winter long (through zone 7); William Woys Weaver, located in Pennsylvania, says he sows in January for early summer harvest.

  • Primax Cabbage
    NEW!

    Cabbage, Primax (Organic)

    $3.50$7.00
    Brassica oleracea. 60 days.

    Our all-time favorite summer cabbage! Primax dependably produces rm, round, pale green heads that range in size from 2-4 lbs – just the right size for our kitchen. We also love it because it manages to be both crisp and tender at the same time, and it holds well in the eld. This variety is an old standby but has become hard to find in recent years as the seed industry has transitioned towards hybrids. We thank our friend and mentor John Navazio for supplying some of our seed stock for this grow-out! Seed produced by Deep Harvest Farm on Whidbey island, Washington.
