Brunswick cabbage is a cold-hardy fall/winter variety that is also heat resistant. It has good flavor fresh and is a favorite for making sauerkraut. The solid heads can weigh 6-10 lbs. These are also delicious in our Spicy Cabbage Salsa Recipe!
Cabbage seeds can be planted outdoors.
Sow seeds 2-3 weeks before the last frost date.
Plant seeds 1/4" deep and 3" apart. Seeds should come up in 7-14 days. Thin seedlings to 18" apart.
Keep cabbage free of weeds. This is especially important when they are small because the weeds will take nutrients away from the cabbages.

First imported to the U.S. in 1824, Brunswick cabbage history says all cole crops were exported under the Brunswick name at that time. This German heirloom, a large drumhead, is becoming rare as winter cabbage growing decreases. For many years it was a favorite for making sauerkraut.
German heirloom with dense, firm drum-shaped heads packed with flavor.
An excellent late-season variety, the large, 6-10lb. drum-shaped heads are dense and firm. A favorite choice for homemade sauerkraut. Cabbage lasts longer in the fridge than most vegetables. If cabbage is properly stored, it can last from 3 weeks to up to 2 months in your refrigerator. In optimum root cellar conditions, it can even last longer. Do not remove the outer leaves nor wash until ready to use. It’s versatile and can be used for soups and salads, shredded into coleslaws, stir-fried, and fermented into sauerkraut. It can be stuffed whole or use individual cabbage leaves, steamed, boiled, fried, roasted, and grilled.
