Red Express Cabbage

Certified Organic Seed

Brassica oleracea

The high-speed train of open-pollinated cabbages.

If your garden was a train station, and cabbages were trains, Red Express would arrive ahead of schedule. Because it is a smaller cabbage and was bred for Northern climates, it's an early producer. This red cabbage is the perfect size for home gardening. Dense but not too large, you can try planting this cabbage closer together than most. Great for a bright coleslaw or homemade sauerkraut.

This variety is suitable for growing as a microgreen. 🌱

Best grown as an early season cabbage. Direct sow under protection in early March (and perhaps again in early April), or start indoors 6 weeks before last frost and transplant 4 weeks later. Space twelve to eighteen inches apart in the row. Cabbages need plenty of water and fertile soil.
