SuperStar Cabbage is a hybrid cabbage variety known for its high-quality heads and is considered one of the best-tasting cabbage varieties in existence. This is a versatile variety that serves well for small-scale market farms or backyard gardens. At maturity, SuperStar heads hold well in the field and after harvesting.
SuperStar Cabbage offers disease-resistant coupled with quality cabbage. The heads are medium to large in size and tightly wrapped. This is a great variety for raw consumption, cooking or fermenting. Use it to make your favorite slaw, soup or sauerkraut.
Cabbage will grow best in areas where weeds are kept to a minimum. Cabbage is moderately frost-tolerant and performs better when planted in cooler weather. Cabbage will tend to bolt in warmer temperatures. Plant cabbage early in spring for a late spring/early summer harvest, or plant in late summer/early fall for a fall harvest. Cabbage are heavy feeders and require a considerable amount of nitrogen for larger heads. For best results, inject or soil drench with a balanced fertilizer at least once every two weeks. If smaller heads are desired, less fertilizer will be adequate.
SuperStar may be direct-seeded or transplanted, although we suggest transplanting. Transplanting allows for more consistent plant spacing and prevents seedlings from competing with weeds in the early stages of the plant. We recommend starting transplants 3-4 weeks before the desired outdoor planting date. SuperStar Cabbage transplants grow great in our heavy-duty seed starting trays, where they develop a solid root ball with roots that are trained to grow downward. Plants are ready to go in the ground when they can be easily pulled from the cells in the seed starting tray.
