Product Description

Compact plants with solid red heads approx. 1-1.8 kg in weight. Crisp with a good flavour and can also be used in mesclun mixes.

The heads hold well and resist splitting. Tidy, tight purple cabbage heads are the ideal answer for those who want to grow cabbage but do not have space for massive plants. As early bearers, they will be among the first cabbages you will 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-fibre food. As for that purple colour, it is perfectly natural, and the fact that Red Express is open-pollinated, rather than carefully hybridized is proof of that.
