Cabbage - Filderkraut

This giant German pointed cabbage has long been used for shredding to make classic sauerkraut and delicious coleslaws. A full sized cabbage can weigh 4.5kg, however at closer spacing it will produce great 'family sized' cabbages.

Sow outdoors thinly, from March to June, in a seed bed, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Water well until plants are established. Transplant 60cm apart, when plants are about 10cm tall. Allow 60cm between plants. Plant firmly and water well. Or sow indoors, from February to April, 0.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm apart to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions before planting out, from April to June, 60cm apart, into well-drained, fertile soil. For smaller cabbages, reduce spacing to 40cm. Harvest from September to November.
