Details

Fans of sauerkraut rejoice: Danish Ballhead is for you. These big fat cabbages don't hold back, growing to a commanding size (8-10 inches in diameter) and yielding lots of cabbage leaves for krauting. Danish Ballhead is also a good storage variety; pull the whole plants in the fall and hang upside-down, root intact, in a cool basement room. Plants will keep at least one month--and under good conditions up to three or four. A late-season type that does best with early-summer sowings.
Number of Seeds 100 seeds
Spacing in Row 24 inches
Spacing Between Rows 24 to 36 inches
Planting Depth ½ inch
Days to Germination 7 to 14 days
Days to Maturity 110 days
Height at Maturity 12 to 24 inches
Width at Maturity 8 to 10 inches

Start seeds indoors in mid-June. Transplant 3-4 weeks later, 24" apart. Grows slowly the whole summer, and matures into big heads--perfect for the root cellar or making sauerkraut--in the fall. Cabbages prefer fertile and well drained soil. Water at least 1" per week, more in extreme heat.
