All our seed is Open Pollinated, grown in Ireland. Beside each variety a symbol tells you where it’ s been grown:
ISSA − Irish Seed Savers association
S.G. − Seed Guardian
C.O. − Certified Organic
Spring cabbage − CO − ISSA
These are more of our native Irish Commercialized Brassicas, these particular spring cabbages grown and collected in and around Cork city. Over the harsh winter of 2009 many cabbage varieties succumbed to the unusual cold. We too lost many in number, but some survived and these are the seed from those hardy parents. Lush tender greens and small pointed heads all through spring.
Note: Sow spring cabbage last week of July or first week of August for the following Spring in modules and plant out transplants 4−6 weeks later 30−40cm apart. Were usually sown where early potatoes had been dug, applying compost or composted manure first
Flat Dutch cabbage − CO − ISSA
These were selections from the native Irish on farm collection of seed; often called common cabbage. Good big, white/green heads, that stood well through the winter. (Those that didn't, we couldn't save seed from!)
Cut−n−Come Cabbage (B. Oleracea var. acephala
Delaway cabbage CO − ISSA
An Irish heirloom variety, saved for generations by the Hughes family in Co. Mayo. Exceptionally hardy cut'n'come again cabbage. Tall vigorous plant with large tender leaves and purple stems.
Fodder Rape (B. rappa)
Emerald CO - ISSA
This is an Irish bred lush green fodder rape. We discovered, growing it out to rejuvenate old seed, that it is really quite delicious to eat, more tender than kale. Stood well through the winter, so good for the pot and for the animals.
