Organic Cabbage Seeds: “Golden Acre” (500 mg ~110 seeds) Description:
Our Organic Heirloom “Golden Acre” Cabbage seeds produce 3-4 pound, tight heads that are succulent, sweet and tender, perfect raw in salads, coleslaw, sauerkraut, stir fry and served steamed with Corned Beef. They are known for their early production and uniformity.
The 1927 Henry Fields Seed Catalog says, “It is claimed to be the earliest round headed cabbage and that it matures before Early Jersey Wakefield cabbage. The heads are firm with few outer leaves and average about four pounds.”
The 1929 Steele Briggs Seed Catalog says “Golden Acre: This variety resembles Copenhagen Market in type; but the heads though not quite so large are more uniformly round than Copenhagen. It is six days earlier than Copenhagen Market and on account of the smaller head may be planted closer than any other variety with a head of similar size. Its remarkable fine quality and tenderness will be greatly appreciated. There is an entire absence of coarse veins and leaves and it has the quality of hardening the head before it has attained its mature size. A good variety for market purposes.”
The 1932 Burpee Seed Catalog says, “This is a very superior stock of a popular extra early, round-headed variety of the Copenhagen Market type. Matures even earlier than Early Jersey Wakefield. Produces a uniform, tightly fold, round, well-balanced head of superb quality. Unsurpassed cabbage for the home or market garden.”

Planting Tips for Heirloom Cabbage:
Start spring seedlings early indoors 4-5 weeks before transplanting so that they can mature before the heat of summer. Start fall transplants 2-3 months before first frost. Transplant when 3” tall at least 90 days before your first frost. When transplanting, enrich your soil with a little blood and bone meal. Needs cool temperatures to head properly – will bolt in heat. Keeping soil evenly moist is a must for healthy crops. For a longer cabbage harvest plant 2 or 3 varieties with different maturities.
Heirloom cabbage will do well on heavy clay soil, although it prefers a rich heavy loam. Heavily mix composted manure into the soil bed during soil preparation. Rotate cabbage locations in your garden year to year. The soil pH should be between 6.0 and 7.5 for optimum growth and to discourage clubroot disease.
