Name: Cabbage 'Vertus'

 I do grow some 'normal' vegetables and this is one, because a lot of people like a cabbage that is 'standard'. Vertus is a savoy cabbage (it has finely crinkled leaves) and is one of the best for making coleslaw.

 If you want a standard cabbage that will do everything you want, this is it - grows well, tender, mild.
