A wonderfully winter-hardy semi-savoy cabbage that is renowned in the UK as one of the finest tasting cabbages on the market.


Sorry – We have had to temporarily suspend accept new orders.


[160-210 days] Cultivated in England since at least 1867, January King is beautiful to behold. Its blue-green leaves come splashed with burgundy, wrapping around a small light-green savoy head weighing in between 3-5 pounds. It’s extremely vigorous and can survive even the hardest of our UK winters. Plant it out in July for cabbage all winter long or sow in early spring for a summer cabbage.

Flavour-wise you can’t go wrong with this variety, and the sweet, crunchy heads taste great stir-fried, roasted, baked, and even steamed.
