Kalibos Red Cabbage Seeds

[85 days from transplant] A truly beautiful Eastern European red cabbage, Kalibos sports deep purple leaves on conical heads that grow up to 2 pounds. The flavor is quite sweet and works beautifully in salads and slaws, as well as in pickling. Also tasty braised, roasted, and in borscht. Honestly, these might be the best-tasting cabbages you’ll ever grow.

Best sown as a fall cabbage. They do take a little longer to mature than many other cabbages, but they’re well worth the wait. And they’re good keepers.

Common Questions

How long does it take for Kalibos Red cabbage seeds to germinate? Once your seedlings have been sown in modular trays and receiving regular maintenance they should take around 10 days to sprout and complete the germination cycle.

Why are my Kalibos Red cabbage seeds dying? One of the main reasons that your cabbage is wilting is when it is not receiving enough water. Pests and bugs, especially cutworms, can attack your seedlings early on, making sure you check for bugs routinely is important.

Why are my Kalibos cabbage heads not tight? If your Kalibos cabbage isn't receiving enough water or hasn't been given enough space then growth can be affected. Hot weather and constant irrigation can also cause loose heads to form on your cabbage plants.
