Planting+
Red cabbage seed requires no prior treatment but soaking them overnight in lukewarm water will encourage germination. Cabbages grow quickly and will thrive in a moisture retaining soil that has been well fertilised in the winter.
Care+
Water extra only in dry periods. White cabbages should be fertilised regularly throughout the season. Keep the bed weed-free and the cabbages will thrive.
Specifics+
Cabbages and cauliflower all belong in the same family (Brassicaceae or Cruciferea). Although they may look different, genetically speaking they are all practically identical and in Latin these edibles get the name 'Brassica oleracea'. The different varieties have all been selected and continually hybridised over the past 5,000 years. This cabbage falls under 'Brassica oleracea convar. capitata var. rubra' and is a bi-annual that generally bolts and sets seed in year two. There are many varieties of cabbage - earlies, lates and those that can be sown year round. There are also varieties with more or less resistance to cold. Keep to the instructions on the packet to avoid problems - fast growers are often less hardy and unsuitable for harvesting in frost. The red colouring in red cabbage comes from the pigment cyanidin which is activated depending on the ph value of the soil. So red cabbage is a good ph indicator - pink when the soil has a high ph, purple when it is neutral, blue when base level is achieved and it will even turn white when lower than base level. A squeeze of lemon or vinegar will help turn it more red.
