Incredibly reliable overwintering green cabbage. Plant it in the autumn and reap a splendid spring harvest of dark green leafy heads and tender, pointed hearts.
Sorry – We have had to temporarily suspend accept new orders.
[240 Days] Also known as the “sweet heart cabbage,” Wheeler’s Imperial is an English heritage variety that remains one of the best varieties for overwintering. Bred by George Wheeler of Warminster in Wiltshire circa 1844, this cabbage likes the cold and can be harvested in February as “spring greens” or as hearted cabbaged from April on. The hearts are compact and firm, yet tender and they have a delightful flavour.
Can also be planted in the spring for an autumn crop.
