Average Seeds 200
An old and rare French Heritage variety originating in the Town of Aubervilliers near Paris, which is famous for its fertile fields and fantastic vegetables. The beautifully crinkly savoy style cabbage is very tender with a mild taste, it also resists bolting and can be harvested in the autumn/winter. Sow April-May. Harvest November-December and January-March (yr2).
Sow thinly April-May direct into a finely raked seedbed at a depth of 1.3cm (½). Germination 12-20 days. Transplant with a dibber or trowel when large enough to handle allowing 45cm (18") between plants each way. Grows best in well cultivated soil liberally manured the previous autumn. If the weather is dry, water in well when transplanting. Cabbages require lime in the soil for optimum growth so add as necessary. Sowing to cropping: 20 weeks onwards.
