Growing Calendar for Cabbage Seeds - Candisa F1 Hybrid
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
Cabbage 'Candisa' F1 Hybrid is an exclusive early maturing, compact summer cabbage which can be grown close. A crisp heart with little core, meaning less waste.
Candisa is a tender and sweet cabbage, good enough for coleslaw and salads too. Can be harvested as a mini-cabbage.
This was our trial variety for 2008 and the results were outstanding! We could hardly believe the wonderful comments from our customers. So many took the time and trouble to send in photos and detailed reports of the results from germination to final cut.
Some even had suggestions for a name, Mr Rollins suggested ‘Crispy Delight' (his wife enjoyed it raw in coleslaw), Mr Dannat suggested ‘Marshalls Summer Wonder' - a good all round cabbage.
