Mammoth Red

Out of stock

Here’s a safe, solid choice that’s been grown since 1889! The Mammoth Red Rock Cabbage develops sturdy 8-in. heads that weigh in at 7 pounds. The red color is true throughout the head, and it is excellent for cooking, salads and pickling. Matures 98 days from transplant.

Each packet contains approximately 100 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Start indoors and transplant into the garden when two sets of true leaves develop. Plants are extremely hardy and can be grown among the earliest of cool-season crops. Allow approximately 15 inches between plants and 24 inches between rows.

Depending on variety, transplants should be ready to harvest in 6-8 weeks. Cut the stalk at the base of the head and compost the outer leaves. Some varieties will produce secondary heads when the main head is cut from the stem. Wash carefully and refrigerate for up to two weeks, if necessary.
