Suggested Planting Requirements: Cabbages need very rich soil to be strong producers. Amending soil organically before planting is recommended. When growing cabbage in particularly cold areas, grow in your warmest spot in the garden. For San Diego growers simply grow in full sun. Cabbage is hardy enough to direct sow.
Growing recommendation: cabbages can be grown in fall or spring if the conditions meet the growing temperatures. Spacing should e considered as cabbage plants can take up a considerable amount of space.
Harvesting and Storage: Harvest as soon as the cabbage head is the desired size. Harvest by cutting through the base of the plant that holds the head. You can also twist the plant head off but this is more damaging to the plant. Do not wash until use to prevent premature rot. Store in the refrigerator for weeks.
