Deadon F1 Cabbage Seeds

[105 days] Deadon Red Savoy cabbage is a January King-type cabbage whose taste only improves as the winter goes on. Its magenta-coloured, medium-large heads resist splitting and offer a remarkably sweet flavour throughout the season. (The colour and sweetness intensifies with cold weather.) The outer leaves are a beautiful red and are often used for garnishes, while the inner, light-green leaves are well known for their crispness and slightly spicy “nip.”

Best when planted from mid-summer until mid-autumn for harvesting Jan-Feb.

One of the best cabbages for coleslaw!
