Giant Cabbage Seed
« on: December 09, 2010, 12:32:17 PM »
I am looking for Giant Cabbage seed like they grow the big ones in Alaska.I know they won't grow as good in the south but would like to try them anyway and I though that starting out with some seeds off of a big one it would help.


Thanks

The NG cabbage we grow have ended up between 40 to 50 lbs. the last few years.
For the exact numbers look on the Port Elgin site.

David Thomas (Cornish Giant) is one of the best growers around of giant cabbage. He brought a 100 Lb plus cabbage to Southampton this year.
If you can get some of his seeds, I would plant them !

The 'Cornish Cabbage' strain that I grow are bread by George Rogers a local farmer and freind of mine, they have been in his family for a couple of generations, George has generously shared his seeds with a lot of growers world wide and also does very well with them at the shows in the UK.

Don you can email me at david.thomas.uk at Hotmail.com

Good luck to everyone,
