Produces 1.5 kg round densely packed heads with a sweet flavour which is better than Gonzales which it replaces. Slow to bolt Tiara is excellent both cooked and used fresh in salads. Sow from July until February for cropping most of the year.
Great Flavoured Early Cabbage This is a good choice for those who live in very hot areas as it will flourish in the hottest conditions. The flavoursome 2 kg densely packed round heads are slow to bolt. Sow from early August until late October.
A good new winter red savoy cabbage which resists splitting for a good length of time. Plant seed from mid-summer until mid-autumn for harvesting from early to late winter. This cabbage has a good sweet flavour which improves with cold weather.
A terrific savoy cabbage which can be planted from early spring until late autumn. Size will depend on how closely seedlings are planted. I plant this variety closely 25cm by 25cm to give a cabbage which will feed half a dozen people.
‘Hustler’ is a very productive variety of yellow with straight fruit averaging 20cm in length. The fruit has thick walls and delicious sweet capsicum flavour. Good disease resistance makes this one of the best of its type.
‘Vitaverde’ is a strong grower suited to near year round production as it is both heat and cold tolerant. Sow seed from August until late February. Makes large heads on a healthy large frame with an attractive, green curd.
As I grow coriander for its leaves rather than for its seeds I grow this slow bolting variety. It is ready to pick in less than a month and a half and will under reasonable conditions take three or four months before it runs up to seed.
Anyone who has ever eaten corn salad, or mache as it is known in Europe, knows just how wonderful a winter salad green it is. A cool season vegetable I pick enough for a salad several times a week from the end of May until spring.
