Level of difficulty to grow:
Days to maturity: 50 Days
Plant spacing: 18 inches apart
Light Requirement: Requires 4-5 hours of sunlight during the day
Soil Requirement: It requires well drained, loamy and nutrient rich soil. Maintaining the soil quality is very important for its head formation.
Water Requirement: Keeping the soil moist at all times is vital. Water evaporation can be prevented through mulching the soil.
Harvesting: Harvest heads that have tightened by cutting right above the base along with 2-3 leaves to prevent the edible part from getting damaged. Home grown cabbage may have a smaller head. Therefore, tightness of the head should be a determinant of its maturity and not its size. Do not let the head spread out as this indicates spoilage of the fruit.
