Name: Cabbage 'Kalibos'

 B. Oleracea

Origin:

 

This is a cute little cabbage suitable for smaller gardens. It is a red cabbage so it looks great in coleslaw. I find all red cabbages a bit tougher in texture than green ones and this is no exception, but cooking gets rid of that.

The flavour is nice and mild.

 

When to sow: Mid to late summer. Sow into punnets or trays and transplant when they are big enough to handle easily.

 

Plant Type: heading cabbage

 

Uses: Steam, coleslaw - there are heaps of cabbage recipes online.

 

Growing Conditions: Good, well manured soil. Water regularly when it is dry.

 

Pests and Diseases: White butterflies are the worst. netting is advised, at least until the weather cools down in autumn.

 

Special Qualities: Small. Great colour

 

Seeds: 200 minimum in a packet
