Tidy, tight purple cabbage heads are the ideal answer for those who want to grow cabbage, but don't have space for massive plants. As early bearers, they'll be among the first cabbages you'll harvest this winter, and the relatively small size of the heads makes them easy to use up once cut. Plus, you get all the colour you could wish for and a great source of antioxidant-rich, high-fiber food. As for that purple colour, it's perfectly natural, and the fact that Red Express is open-pollinated, rather than carefully hybridized is proof of that.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Prepare soil with a lot of compost and organic matter prior to sowing. Cabbages can be started in trays but direct sowing followed by thinning is preferable. The plants will grow best in full sun in temperatures between 15 - 24C. Keep an eye on the plants as they will tend to bolt if they get too hot or lack enough moisture.

    How to Harvest

    Harvest the cabbages once they feel firm and have reached a good size. Small cabbages will be more tender, while large cabbages from autumn growth keep well over the winter.
