Late Flat Dutch

110 days — The flattened oval heads are about seven inches deep by ten to twelve inches in diameter. A good keeper, they are one of the best late fall and early winter cabbages.

The exact origins of this variety seem to be lost to history but what we do know is that it is an old Dutch variety dating as far back as 1846. Some believe it to be a selection of the old German variety, 'Brunswick'.[1]  Each packet contains 0.5 gram, which is approximately 75 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Plant indoors five weeks prior to your last expected frost date. Sow at a depth of about ¼ inch keeping moist until the seedlings appear. Use as much light as possible, watering as required.

Two weeks prior to transplanting, acclimate the seedlings to the outdoors by moving outside into the shade and then return indoors at night. Expose the plants to more direct sunlight every day. Check moisture regularly. Transplant 16 inches apart in rows spaced 24 inches.
