You can sow the seeds directly in your garden when the soil temperatures are above 40°F, or sow indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost for an earlier season crop. Culinary Uses Golden Acre Cabbage is just like your common grocery store variety of cabbage. However, most grocery store varieties are not heirloom. This cabbage variety makes it an excellent choice for slaw and stir fry type recipes, as well as many other cuisines. Harvesting Crops Golden Acre Cabbage can be harvested at any time, but most gardeners wait until the heads are 3-5lbs and solid. Harvest cabbage quickly as soon as it is ready, otherwise the heads can crack or split and invite unwanted pests. Harvesting Seed Cabbage, and anything else in the cabbage family (Brussels Sprouts) is Biennial. This means, you will have to wait until next spring to harvest your seeds. Grow your cabbage varieties in separate growing seasons, otherwise you may wind up with a mutant. Set aside a portion of your cabbage crop to over-winter and pick the dried seed pods from the shoots next spring. Dry the pods for a few weeks and store properly for an alternating growing season if you are using different types of cabbage.

Red cabbage can grow alright in shade but prefer a nice sunny spot. Avoid planting in an area where the soil dries out rapidly or becomes waterlogged with little drainage. The best growing condition is in a well-drained and loosened soil (about 8-10" deep) with a layer of mulch to keep moisture in. Culinary Uses Red Acre cabbage is the one most often chosen by those with smaller backyard gardens. This type of cabbage is resistant to yellowing and stores better than almost any other cabbage. Great raw, in slaw or stir-fried. Harvesting Crops Cabbage yields can be harvested at any point after the heads form. If you are starving and the head is only 3 inches, you are fine to go ahead and eat it. However, the best results are when the cabbage is just firm to hand pressure. Do not let them stay this way for long, they will crack and split. Harvesting Seed Cabbage, and anything else in the cabbage family (Brussels Sprouts) is Biennial.
