Ormskirk Cabbage Seeds

[75 days from transplant] First developed in England in 1899, the Ormskirk savoy is an old heritage variety that has a pale green centre and fine, blue-green outer leaves. Its texture is quite firm and crunchy, with a tenderness that brings out its fine flavour when cooked. Like all Lancashire cabbages, the Ormskirk doesn’t mind severe weather and will make it through the harshest winter without so much as the hint of a crack. It matures in November, can be harvested in most years all the way through March, and can stand for weeks without splitting. In fact, the timing of its maturity and it’s fine nutty flavour makes it the perfect Christmas cabbage.
