Very consistent, broad Napa cabbage with mild, tender leaves.
Every plant made compact, attractive heads with dark green wrapper leaves and vanilla interiors in our trials. An excellent choice for commercial growers! Holds well in the field; good resistance to bolting in summer temperatures. Slightly larger and later than Kaboko F1 but a good substitute. From Bejo Seeds.
Disease and bolt-resistant
Disease Resistance Details: High Resistance: Clubroot, Fusarium Yellows; Intermediate Resistance: Tip Burn
Soil Nutrients and Requirements: Cabbages prefer well drained fertile soil that is within the range of 6.0-7.5 pH. A general guideline is 2-3 lbs of 8-16-16 fertilizer over 100 sq ft of garden area two weeks before planting. If boron is not present in your soils, consider adding 1 Tbs per 100 sq ft. Best quality arises from loose well drained fertile soils.
Seeding Depth: 1/2"
Plant Spacing: For fresh market 10-18 inches; for storage and processing 18-24 inches
Row Spacing: For fresh market 12-18", for storage and processing 18-34 inches
When to Sow: Direct sow when daytime soil temps warm to 75 degrees F. Start seeds indoors or in cold frames 4-6 weeks before planting date. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 75 degrees F but seeds will germinate in soils as cool as 50 degrees F. Early varieties can be transplanted after danger of hard frost has passed. Mid-late season storage or processing types can be transplanted in June-early July for fall harvest. Napa cabbages are best direct seeded or transplanted in mid-May for July harvest.
Harvest: Cabbage is mature when the tight outer leaf of the head begins to fold back on itself. Cut heads flat on underside.
