Cabbage Seed Planting Information:

Cabbage grows best when daytime temperatures are under 80 F. High fertility, improper water conditions, and heat can cause loose, puffy heads. Spring planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked, 3 to 5 weeks before last frost, and fall planting done around June or July. Plants can grow 6 to 12" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Maintain consistent moisture to prevent heads from cracking. Water on the sides of the plant and avoid wetting any part of the plant.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro twice a month.

Harvest Tips:

Cut heads with sharp knife at ground level.


FY - Fusarium Yellows

Scientific Name: Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. conglutinans

Type: Fungus

Fusarium Yellows is a soil borne disease that affects the growth of broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, kohlrabi, mustard, radishes, rutabaga, turnips, and watercress. It is a warm weather disease affecting cabbage throughout the United States. Cabbage and radish crops can be completely destroyed when the soil is infected with the disease. Symptoms include the curling of the leaves and the leaves turning a dull green to a yellowish-green color within a month after transplanting into the field. Young plants may be stunted, turn yellow, and die rapidly in warm weather. The leaves will turn yellow, then brown, wither, and eventually drop off the plant. The infected plants usually die within 2 weeks, other may die slowly. The surviving infected plants will have poor heads of cabbages that are non-desirable. The disease is sometimes confused with black rot, where the leaf veins turn black, rather than turning brown. The disease is favorable when temperatures are 80-85 F. Since the disease can survive in the soil for a long time, crop rotation, fungicide treatment, and destruction of crops, will have little impact once the soil is infected. The only option is to use disease resistant varieties.
