Learn to Grow Red Kalibos Cabbage
Start Indoors: 6-8 weeks before last frost
Germination: 7-12 Days
Plant Outdoors: 24-36” Apart
Light: Full Sun
Instructions - Sow seed indoors ¼" deep 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Plant out just before the last frost. Take care not to disrupt the shallow root system while transplanting and weeding. Make sure cabbage has a regular supply of water. Mulching cabbage will reduce weeds and keep moderate temperatures and even moisture in the soil. Cabbage is a heavy feeder and consequently needs an even supply of nutrients.
Ratings & Reviews
I grew this cabbage last year and loved it! First of all it’s a beautiful plant with no pests at all. It made a delicious batch of sauerkraut and retained its color nicely! I’ll be growing Kalibos again.
