When to sow outside: 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost for a summer crop or 10 to 12 weeks before average first fall frost for a fall crop.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost for spring transplanting, or 4 to 6 weeks before transplanting outdoors for fall crop. Start in biodegradable pots that go directly in the ground for minimal transplant shock. Ideal soil temperature for germination is 75°-85°F. Mild Climates: Sow in fall for a cool season harvest.

Harvesting: Harvest heads as soon as they are well developed, firm, and solid when squeezed. Cut off heads at base with a sharp knife. Cabbages left in the ground beyond maturity are more subject to disease and splitting. Harvest in the morning if possible. If harvested in the heat, dunk in ice water to reduce "field heat" and increase storage time. Allow to drain before storing.
