Longtime favorite with a distinctly sweet flavor: great for salads and slaws. A cabbage with a pedigree. This New Jersey adaptation of an older English variety, 'Early Wakefield', has proven a reliable favorite for US gardens since the 1840s, especially in Northern climes. Quickly produces large, dense, elongated 7" heads, with a distinctly sweet flavor ideal for eating raw in salads and slaws, cooking or pickling. Weighing 2-3 lbs., the heads have a small core and good protective wrapper leaves.
