RED ACRE CABBAGE SEEDS
DESCRIPTION & NUTRITIONAL VALUE
Red Acre Cabbage is an heirloom, open-pollinated variety that provides excellent storage capabilities. Plants produce beautiful, reddish-purple heads that are compact and require less space than traditional green cabbage varieties. This makes it a great variety for smaller gardens or intensive planting applications. Red Acre Cabbage heads are typically about 2-4 pounds and 6-7″ in diameter. Heads are also resistant to splitting and maintain their spherical shape throughout the growing cycle. This food is very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol.
