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.
