Red Drumhead Cabbage Seeds

[120 days] One of our favourite heirloom pickling cabbages, Red Drumhead is super easy to grow and yields beautiful densely-packed heads from late summer on. Its leaves are a gorgeous deep purple-red and the hearts a striking dark red.

The colour, texture, and ability to hold its flavour make Red Drumhead ideal for both cooking and pickling. It also creates a colourful accent to raw dishes and salads.

Spring planted, this variety matures from September through to Christmas. It also stores well.
