From the Territorial Seed catalog:
“74 days. Like a giant tea rose blooming in your cool-weather garden, these purple/red cabbages form gorgeous pointed heads swirling out of their blue/green outer leaves. As tasty as it is beautiful, this Eastern European heirloom has a high sugar content for shredding and adding to fresh salads or making spectacular pink slaw or kraut. In the field, the 2-3 pound heads shed winter’s weather thanks to their shape, and after harvest they store well, too.” Photo courtesy of Territorial Seed.
