Cabbages may not be the type of vegetable that gets people excited, but these two new varieties have some great advantages that might inspire you grow them.
'Icy Fingers' cabbage is one of the most stunningly beautiful ornamental cabbages available. Deeply cut, frizzy, silver-blue outer leaves contrast well with the deep maroon heart. The densely packed plant grows 12 to 18 inches tall. It makes a great addition to the flower and vegetable garden.
Chinese cabbage is an easy to grow green, but often the large heads are more than you can use in one sitting. Enter 'Wa Wa Tsai Hybrid' Chinese cabbage. This variety is a great space saver. The heads barely fit in your hand at maturity growing only 10 to 12 ounces within 60 days of seeding. They are great in stir fries, soups, and salads.
